AC42981, AC42982 - Canner v. Governor's Ridge Assn., Inc., Puteri v. Governor's Ridge Assn., Inc. ("These appeals arise from a dispute concerning the foundations of two condominium units located in the Governor's Ridge common interest community in Trumbull. In Docket No. AC 42981 (first appeal), the plaintiff, Glen A. Canner (Canner), in his capacity as executor of the estate of Charles A. Canner, appeals from the judgment of the trial court in favor of the defendants, Governor's Ridge Association, Inc. (Governor's Ridge); South Meadow Development, LLC (South Meadow), Glenn Tatangelo, and Anthony O. Lucera (South Meadow defendants); the town of Trumbull and Donald G. Murray (town defendants); and Adeeb Consulting, LLC (Adeeb Consulting) and Kareem Adeeb (Adeeb defendants), after the court concluded that each count alleged against the defendants was time barred by the applicable statute of limitations. On appeal, Canner claims that the court improperly concluded that (1) his claim against Governor's Ridge brought pursuant to General Statutes § 47-278 is time barred by the statute of limitations period set forth in General Statutes § 52-577, and (2) his nuisance claims are time barred by the statute of limitations codified in either § 52-577 or General Statutes § 52-584.

In Docket No. AC 42982 (second appeal), the plaintiff, Louis D. Puteri, similarly appeals from the judgment of the trial court in favor of the defendants after the court concluded that each count alleged against the defendants was time barred by the applicable statute of limitations. On appeal, Puteri claims that the court erred for the same reasons Canner asserts in his appeal. We disagree with the plaintiffs and, accordingly, affirm the judgments of the court.")

Bradford ("The plaintiff, Kimberly Karanda, appeals from the judgment of the trial court denying her motion to open a judgment of nonsuit due to her noncompliance with a discovery order.
