AS 13.36.180. Exoneration or Reimbursement For Tort.

(a) A trustee who has incurred personal liability for a tort committed in the administration of the trust is entitled to exoneration for the liability from the trust property if the trustee has not discharged the claim, or to reimbursement for the liability out of trust funds if the trustee has paid the claim, if the trustee or an officer or employee of the trustee was not guilty of personal fault in incurring the liability.

(b) If a trustee has incurred personal liability for a tort committed in the administration of the trust and that tort increases the value of the trust property, the trustee is entitled to exoneration or reimbursement to the extent of the increase in value as a result of the tort even though the trustee would not otherwise be entitled to exoneration or reimbursement.

(c) Nothing in this section shall be construed to change the existing law with regard to the liability of trustees of charitable trusts for torts of the trustees or their employees.
