Tort Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC39185 - Teodoro v. Bristol ("On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the trial court erred in granting the defendants’ motion for summary judgment (1) without considering the deposition transcript excerpts she had filed in opposition to the motion, and (2) without considering her surreply brief and attached exhibits. We agree with the plaintiff that the trial court erred in not considering the deposition excerpts she offered in opposition to the motion on the ground that they were not authenticated properly. We disagree, however, that the trial court abused its discretion in not considering the plaintiff’s surreply brief and attached exhibits. We therefore reverse the summary judgment rendered by the trial court in favor of the defendants, and remand this case for further consideration of the defendants’ motion in accordance with this opinion, and for such other proceedings as may thereafter be appropriate, according to law.")
