Gov. Corzine signed new legislation this week, known as “Ronnie’s Law,” that requires fiduciaries (such as executors, testamentary guardians and testamentary trustees) of estates of developmentally disabled individuals to post bonds in Superior Court. The statute is the Legislature's response to the theft of $814,000 by a disbarred Audubon Heights attorney from an estate established for an autistic man, Ronnie Mich, by his father. The bond amount is based on the value of the estate’s assets and the purpose of the bond is to protect the estate’s assets from bad acts by the fiduciaries. The fiduciary will be required to provide the court with an estate accounting every five years.
