Contract Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Oumano, Emily


AC46122 - C. W. v. E. W. (“The plaintiff, C. W., appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered following a court trial in an action seeking enforcement of an alleged oral agreement pursuant to which the self-represented defendants, E. W. and A. W., would sell the plaintiff real property in Waterbury after he performed repairs to it. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly (1) rendered judgment in favor of the defendants on the plaintiff’s breach of contract claim after failing to consider judicial admissions allegedly made by the defendants as to the existence of the contract, and (2) found, in the portion of its memorandum of decision addressing the plaintiff’s unjust enrichment claim, the plaintiff’s evidence of his labor at the property to be unreliable. We agree with the plaintiff’s second claim and, accordingly, we reverse the judgment in part.”)
