Employment Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC39102, AC39107 - O'Brien v. New Haven ("These consolidated appeals concern the indemnification provisions of General Statutes § 7-101a. The defendant, the city of New Haven, appeals from the judgment of the trial court in favor of the plaintiff, William O’Brien, its former tax assessor, awarding him the attorney’s fees and costs that he incurred in defending himself in a prior action brought by a third party. In its appeal, the defendant claims that the plaintiff’s action for indemnification was barred because he failed to comply with the notice requirement and time limitations of § 7-101a (d). In his appeal, the plaintiff challenges the trial court’s denial of his request for the attorney’s fees and costs that he incurred in bringing the present action, claiming that § 7-101a authorizes such an award. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
