Family Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Roy, Christopher


AC43293 - Mecca v. Mecca ("The defendant, William F. Mecca, Jr., appeals from the decision of the trial court denying his motion to open the judgment of dissolution. On appeal, he argues that the court abused its discretion by (1) applying an incorrect legal standard with respect to his motion to open and (2) failing to consider a pattern of fraudulent conduct on the part of the plaintiff, Elizabeth Mecca. We disagree and affirm the judgment of the trial court.")

AC41858 - Carten v. Carten ("The defendant, Judy Junying Carten, appeals from the judgment of the trial court dissolving her marriage to the plaintiff, Donald George Carten, Jr. The plaintiff claims on appeal that the court should have awarded her alimony. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
