Tort Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Agati, Taryn


AC46460 - Cardoza v. Waterbury ("The plaintiff, Paula M. Cardoza, appeals from the judgment of the trial court granting the motion to dismiss filed by the defendant, the city of Waterbury, for lack of subject matter jurisdiction over the plaintiff's complaint on the basis that she failed to comply with the requirements of the notice provision of the municipal defective highway statute, General Statutes § 13a-149. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court erred in granting the defendant's motion to dismiss because the written notice that she submitted to the defendant contained sufficient information in compliance with the notice requirements of § 13a-149, or, in the alternative, the savings clause of § 13a-149 grants her relief under the statute. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the court.")
