Property Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Zigadto, Janet


AC42610 - American Tax Funding, LLC v. First Eagle Corp. (Municipal tax collection; special defenses; "In this collection action, the plaintiff, American Tax Funding, LLC, appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in favor of the defendant First Eagle Corporation on two of its special defenses. The court concluded that the plaintiff, the assignee of municipal tax liens, was barred from recovery. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court (1) improperly determined that its claims were extinguished pursuant to General Statutes ยง 12-195, and (2) erred when concluding that the defendant's debt to the plaintiff had been satisfied. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")

AC40608 - Morton v. Syriac (Temporary and permanent injunction; easement; "The defendant, Neil Syriac, appeals from the judgment of the trial court granting a permanent injunction enjoining him from obstructing the use of a shared driveway that runs across the defendant's property by the plaintiff, Michele Morton, who is his former wife. The defendant asserts that the trial court erred by (1) issuing a permanent injunction when the plaintiff neither alleged nor proved that she would suffer irreparable harm and that she lacked an adequate remedy at law, (2) modifying the separation agreement previously stipulated to by the parties and incorporated into an earlier judgment of dissolution, (3) allowing the plaintiff to introduce evidence that contradicted judicial admissions contained in her complaint, and (4) denying his motion to disqualify the trial judge without a hearing. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
