Employment Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Roy, Christopher


AC40597 - Boucher v. Saint Francis GI Endoscopy, LLC ("In this employment discrimination action, the plaintiff, Darlene Boucher, appeals from the summary judgment rendered by the trial court in favor of her employer, the defendant, Saint Francis GI Endoscopy, LLC, on the plaintiff's complaint, which alleged that her employer retaliated against her when she complained about being sexually harassed by a coworker. See General Statutes § 46a-60 (b) (4). On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly granted the defendant's motion for summary judgment because there is a genuine issue of material fact as to her retaliation claim. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")

AC40130 - Fitzgerald v. Bridgeport ("The defendant Manuel Cotto appeals from the judgment of the trial court dismissing his counterclaim and in favor of the plaintiffs. The court struck Cotto's name from the eligibility list for promotion to police captain after concluding that Cotto had not met the eligibility requirements and should not have been allowed to take the captain examination. On appeal, Cotto claims that the court improperly (1) dismissed his counterclaim for lack of subject matter jurisdiction on the basis that he had failed to exhaust his administrative remedies, and (2) determined that a twenty-second lieutenant position was not established as required pursuant to § 206 (d) of the charter of the city of Bridgeport. He claims in the alternative that even if the trial court properly determined that the twenty-second lieutenant position was not established as required, the court's conclusion that he was ineligible to take the captain examination constituted an improper sanction of an illegal appointment. We affirm the judgment of the court.")
