I had this problem as my juggernaut trying to guard a sniper last night. I have found the problem occurs frequently when one of the people involved in the guard dies regardless of class.

Vanguard guarding a Commando

Team death occured, commando no longer able to be guarded, says "target already guarded" when it wasnt. Changing guard to other classes does not clear it.

Only resolution was for Commando to log off and back in.

I've had this happen on my Juggernaut usually after we have just wiped but not always. I can't guard the person I was as it keeps saying hes already guarded. I'll guard someone else and after 5 or so minutes I'll be able to guard the original person I was before this annoying bug struck.

Jedi Shadow:
Used Guard on a Scoundrel, then I unused it on him, then I used it on another person, then I tried to use it on the first person again (Scoundrel) and it said he was already guarded.

I'm fairly sure that's what happened. The process was really quick, less than 10 seconds
Faction Imbalance made me lose my interest.

I'm playing tank assassin. I can confirm the guard issue happens in normal mode operations, I was guarding assassin dps, sorcerer healer and operative healer. I had to change guard target because of the issue several times during ops. Also I can confirm that assassin dps relogged which solved it for some time.

I've experienced with this my wife. She's a Juggernaut and I'm a Powertech. Sometimes it refuses to let me put guard on her unless she has gone through a loading screen or logged out and back in again because the error says that 'the target is already guarded'

The problem seems to be when the juggernaut has guarded a companion. If she removes the guard then I can use the ability on her correctly and then she needs to reapply the guard to the companion afterwards.

The problem also seems to start when the juggernaunt already has me guarding her and then she moves through a loading screen or revives at a med centre quite a distance away.

Jedi Guardian level 35 trying to place it on a level 30ish Jedi Sage in Cademimu. Worked at first then when it dropped off him I couldn't put it back on.

As an assassin I get this all the time when I guard my girlfriend's sorcerer char. I have not pinpointed the moment it happens exactly.

Powertech, guarding an assassin.

Changed guard in the middle of combat from the player to Khem Val. Khem Val dies, trying to switch guard after combat ended to the assassin failed with the "already guarded" message.
