Out-of-State Conservator without Authority to Contract for Incapacitated Person

Conservator appointed in California did not have authority to bind his conservatee to an arbitration agreement in Pennsylvania when the conservator did not follow the procedures to transfer or register the conservatorship under the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act, 20 Pa.C.S. Ch. 59. There was also no agency relationship that would allow the conservator to bind the conservatee. McIlwain v. Saber Healthcare Group, Inc., 2019 PA Super 122.
