Conservatorship of the Person and Estate of Parker, B245202

In an action brought by petitioner-creditor seeking to collect an exemplary damages award from a tortfeasor who was placed under a conservatorship after he was sued for his wrongdoing, the trial court's judgment that the conservator pay the damages award from the conservatee's estate is affirmed, where: 1) the debt was incurred when the conservatee committed the tort, not when the jury rendered its verdict awarding damages for the wrongful conduct; and 2) as a result, the conservator must pay the punitive damages award to the petitioner-creditor from the conservatee's estate.
