Contract Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Roy, Christopher


AC43793 - Eichler v. Healthy Mom, LLC ("The plaintiff, David Eichler, appeals from the judgment of the trial court, rendered after a court trial in favor of the defendant, Healthy Mom, LLC. On appeal, the plaintiff claims, in essence, that the court erred in (1) finding in favor of the defendant on its special defense of waiver, and (2) determining that the defendant had standing to assert rights under certain extension agreements. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")

AC42893 - Asnat Realty, LLC v. United Illuminating Co. ("The plaintiffs, Asnat Realty, LLC (Asnat), and Evergreen Power, LLC (Evergreen), appeal from the judgment of the trial court, Lee, J., rendered after the court granted, in part, the defendants' motion to strike certain portions of their revised complaint (complaint). Specifically, the trial court granted the defendants' motion to strike counts one, three, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten of the complaint, pleading counts of fraud as to the various defendants, and count four, pleading unjust enrichment against the defendant UIL Holdings Corporation (UIL). On appeal, the plaintiffs claim that the court erred in granting the motion because (1) the complaint sufficiently pleaded claims for both fraudulent nondisclosure and fraudulent misrepresentation, (2) the defendants had a duty to the plaintiffs to disclose truthful information, (3) the complaint pleaded the fraud claims with the requisite specificity, (4) the complaint adequately alleged that the plaintiffs relied on the defendants' misrepresentations and nondisclosure to their detriment, and (5) the complaint adequately stated causes of action against the defendants. We are not persuaded and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
