Persons who may institute civil actions on bonds of judges.

Civil actions may be instituted on all bonds given by a probate judge by anyone sustaining any injury by reason of any neglect or omission of such officer to take good and sufficient surety from any executor, administrator or guardian or from any officer whose bond it is his duty to approve or in any case in which it is his duty to require additional bond and he fails so to do or by the failure of such judge to perform any other official duty or by reason of the commission by him of any wrongful act in the performance of his official duties or under color of his office.
