Property Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Zigadto, Janet


AC44348 - Wheeler v. Beachcroft, LLC (Quiet title; "This appeal is the latest episode in what our Supreme Court has described as 'a nearly century old dispute among neighbors in a housing development along the Long Island Sound (sound) over access to the shore.' Wheeler v. Beachcroft, LLC, 320 Conn. 146, 148, 129 A.3d 677 (2016). The defendant Beachcroft, LLC, appeals from the judgment of the trial court summarily enforcing a settlement agreement entered on the record on the eve of trial. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court (1) committed error in making a finding that two intervening defendants, the McBurneys, were not parties to the settlement agreement, and (2) improperly altered or omitted material terms of the settlement agreement in summarily enforcing the settlement agreement. We reverse the judgment of the trial court only insofar as the court's decision summarily enforcing the settlement agreement omitted certain terms of the settlement agreement, and we affirm the judgment in all other respects.")
