Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC42560 - Bank of New York Mellon v. Mangiafico (Foreclosure; whether foreclosure action was barred by limitation period set forth in statute (§ 42a-3-118); "The defendant Sebastian Mangiafico appeals from the judgment of strict foreclosure rendered in favor of the plaintiff, The Bank of New York Mellon, formerly known as The Bank of New York, as Trustee (CWALT 2007-14T2). On appeal, the defendant claims that the trial court erred in granting the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment as to liability only because (1) the action is time barred by the statute of limitations set forth in General Statutes § 42a-3-118, and (2) the court failed to consider the defendant's fifth special defense, namely, that the plaintiff engaged in inequitable conduct. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
