Attorney Eric Stockman, along with his defense team of Attorney Brittany Cates and paralegal Lori DiMaio, recently achieved a defense verdict in an highly contested sexual assault case against a local hospital, in which plaintiffs argued that the hospital was responsible for the criminal conduct of a former employee who assaulted a 94 year old patient during the middle of the day shift. Plaintiffs claimed that the hospital failed to supervise and monitor the ex-employee, thereby causing the assault, and demanded 5 million dollars in closing. The jury rejected the testimony of each of plaintiff's three "experts" after blistering cross-examinations by Attorney Stockman, and rendered a complete defense verdict.
Doug Skalka and Nancy Kinsella, of Neubert, Pepe & Monteith, P.C., served as counsel for Thermospas, Inc., a Connecticut based manufacturer of hot tubs in connection with its chapter 11 bankruptcy filing on February 27, 2012 and the sale of its assets to NTS Acquisition Corp., an affiliate of Jacuzzi Brands.

On November 2, 2012, the Connecticut Supreme Court affirmed the common law doctrine of nullum tempus occurrit regi (no time runs against the King), holding that the State of Connecticut may move forward in its litigation against contractors, design professionals and manufacturers (27 defendants) in connection with alleged defects in the UConn Law School Library completed in 1996. The defendants, sued by the State in 2008, had asserted various statutes of limitations which were held not to apply to the State. The decision also held that the State's Commissioner of Public Works, who signed the contract between the State and the construction manager which included a statute of limitations, did not have the authority to waive sovereign immunity or nullum tempus by agreeing to a statute of limitations. The decision also clarified that an action by the State or a subdivision of the State such as a municipality cannot be barred by the "ordinary" statute of limitations. The Court indicated that the legislative branch, not the judicial branch, would be the proper governmental branch to address this issue. This decision has widespread implications for design, construction, surety and insurance companies doing business in the State of Connecticut on State and municipal projects. Should you have any questions about the decision, please call attorney Deborah Monteith Neubert or attorney Mark E. Stopa, who represent one of the parties in the case.
Congratulations Mark Stopa for being selected as one of the Connecticut Law Tribune's "New Leaders in the Law" 2012. Mark and his co-winners will be honored at dinner held at The Bond Ballroom in Hartford in early November where Governor Malloy will speak.
