Contract Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC41789 - Jacques v. Jacques ("The plaintiff, Jean-Marc Jacques, appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in favor of the defendant, Muriel Jacques. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the trial court erred by (1) concluding that his action was barred by the statute of limitations contained in General Statutes ยง 52-576 (a), (2) determining that it lacked continuing jurisdiction to enforce the parties' separation agreement, and (3) failing to construe the parties' separation agreement as a contract and to effectuate the intent of the parties to the contract. Because, however, the plaintiff has failed to challenge an independent ground for the trial court's ruling, the plaintiff's appeal is moot. Accordingly, we dismiss the plaintiff's appeal.")
