Tort Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Mazur, Catherine

 

AC39298 - Binkowski v. Board of Education (Negligence; "The plaintiff, Amy Binkowski, appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in favor of the defendants Yolanda Jones-Generette and Linda O'Brien following the granting of their motion to strike her third revised complaint. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly concluded that her complaint failed, as a matter of law, to allege facts that would bring it within the intentional tort exception to the exclusivity provision of the Workers' Compensation Act (act), General Statutes ยง 31-275 et seq., as set forth in General Statutes ยง 31-293a. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")

AC39260 - McCarroll v. East Haven (Negligence; "This personal injury action concerns the injuries the minor plaintiff, Mason McCarroll (child), sustained when he fell from a playscape he was climbing on at an elementary school playground. The plaintiffs appeal from the judgment of the trial court rendered when it granted the motion for summary judgment filed by the defendant, the town of East Haven. On appeal, the plaintiffs claim that, in granting the defendant's motion for summary judgment, the court improperly concluded that their claims were barred by the doctrine of governmental immunity. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
