Full title: John LATHROP v. MALCOLM PIRNIE, INC.

Court: Appellate Court of Connecticut.

Date published: Sep 6, 2011

Facts

 In these consolidated appeals, the plaintiff, John Lathrop, and the intervening plaintiff, Olin Corporation–New Haven Copper Company (Olin),  appeal from the summary judgment rendered by the trial court in favor of the defendant, Malcolm Pirnie, Inc. The dispositive issue on appeal is whether the court properly determined that no genuine issue of material fact existed as to whether the seven-year statute of limitations outlined in General Statutes § 52–584a applies in the present case. The plaintiffs argue that a genuine issue of material fact exists as to whether the defendant provided services in connection with “an improvement to real property” within the meaning of § 52–584a (a). We agree with the plaintiffs that a genuine issue of material fact exists. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment of the trial court granting summary judgment in favor of the defendant.
