AC43856 - Monts v. Board of Education ("The plaintiff, Helen Monts, appeals from the judgment of the trial court, rendered after a jury trial, in favor of the defendant, the Board of Education of the City of Hartford. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court erred by (1) failing to charge the jury on her claim of interference with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), 29 U.S.C. § 2601 et seq. (2012), (2) admitting inadmissible hearsay into evidence, and (3) precluding evidence showing that she was disabled within the meaning of the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act (CFEPA), General Statutes § 46a-51 et seq. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
