Legal Malpractice Appellate Court Opinion

by Mazur, Catherine


AC40510 - Cruz v. Schoenhorn (Legal malpractice; "The plaintiff, Eloy Cruz, appeals from the summary judgments rendered by the trial court in favor of the defendants, Jon L. Schoenhorn and Arnaldo J. Sierra, respectively. On appeal, the plaintiff asserts that the trial court erroneously concluded that his legal malpractice claims against the defendants were time barred pursuant to General Statutes § 52-577, the statute of limitations applicable to tort actions, because genuine issues of material fact exist as to whether the continuous representation doctrine applies so as to toll § 52-577. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the summary judgments of the trial court.")
