Probate Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC41980 - In re Probate Appeal of Knott ("The narrow question presented in this appeal asks us to determine whether the Superior Court improperly dismissed the probate appeal of the substitute plaintiff, Andrew S. Knott, administrator of the estate of Lucille S. Kirsch, as untimely. Specifically, the substitute plaintiff argues that his appeal was not untimely because an application for a waiver of fees (fee waiver) had been filed pursuant to General Statutes § 45a-186c, which tolled the time limit set forth in General Statutes § 45a-186 (a). We agree with the substitute plaintiff and, therefore, reverse the judgment of the trial court.")
