Parts 3 and 4 of this article govern proceedings for appointment of a personal representative
to succeed one whose appointment has been terminated. After appointment and qualification, a successor personal representative may be substituted
in all actions and proceedings to which the former personal representative was a party,
and no notice, process or claim which was given or served upon the former personal
representative need be given to or served upon the successor in order to preserve
any position or right the person giving the notice or filing the claim may thereby
have obtained or preserved with reference to the former personal representative. Except as otherwise ordered by the court, the successor personal representative has
the powers and duties in respect to the continued administration which the former
personal representative would have had if the appointment had not been terminated.
