Administrative Appeal Appellate Court Opinion

by Zigadto, Janet


AC38045, AC38083 - Freese v. Dept. of Social Services, Cariglio v. Dept. of Social Services (Administrative appeals; "Our Supreme Court has construed remedial statutes liberally to give effect to their purpose. See Dorry v. Garden, 313 Conn. 516, 533, 98 A.3d 55 (2014). The plaintiffs, Kathleen Freese and Gustav Cariglio, appeal from judgments of the trial court dismissing their administrative appeals. The principal issue in these cases is whether General Statutes ยง 52-109, a remedial savings statute, could be utilized by the plaintiffs to save from dismissal their administrative appeals commenced in the names of the wrong persons as plaintiffs.

. . . The judgments are reversed and the cases are remanded for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.")
