AC37672 - Doe v. West Hartford ("The plaintiff, John Doe, appeals from the summary judgment rendered by the trial court, Sheridan, J., after determining that the plaintiff's causes of action were time barred and were not saved by General Statutes § 52-593a. The plaintiff also appeals from the decision of the court, Dubay, J., denying his motion to disqualify Judge Sheridan. The defendants are: the town of West Hartford and certain members of its police department in their official and individual capacities, namely, James Strillacci, Chief of Police, Detective Donald Melanson, Officer Gino Giansanti, Officer Kimberly Sullivan, Officer Sean Walmsley, Sergeant John Silano, and Detective Michael Camilleri (collectively, town defendants); Dale J. Wallington, M.D., and Resilience Health Care, LLC (collectively, medical defendants); and Hartford Hospital, the Institute of Living, Radhika Mehendru, M.D., Carl Washburn, M.D., and Theodore Mucha, M.D. (collectively, hospital defendants).
On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly rendered summary judgment despite the existence of issues of material fact regarding whether process was delivered to the marshal prior to the expiration of the various statutes of limitations for his causes of action, and that the court improperly denied the plaintiff's motion for disqualification of Judge Sheridan on the ground of judicial bias. We agree that the court improperly rendered summary judgment, and, accordingly, we reverse in part and affirm in part the judgment of the trial court.")
