Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Mazur, Catherine


AC41378 - Connecticut Community Bank, N.A. v. Kiernan ("The plaintiff, Connecticut Community Bank, N.A., doing business as the Greenwich Bank & Trust Company, appeals from the judgment of the trial court awarding what it claims to be an allegedly insufficient amount of attorney's fees after finding the defendant James T. Kiernan, Jr., liable pursuant to a mortgage note that he executed in favor of the plaintiff. The plaintiff claims on appeal that the trial court erred by excluding from its award any attorney's fees that it had incurred in protecting the priority of its mortgage as to a subsequent encumbrancer, M&T Bank, formerly known as Hudson City Savings Bank (M&T Bank), which it had brought into this action as a defendant on its claim of interpleader. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
