Banks v. Thomas

In Banks v. Thomas, 241 Conn. 569, 698 A.2d 268 (1997), the Court considered whether the two week limitation period for filing a writ of error, pursuant to General Statutes 52-273, deprived the court of subject matter jurisdiction. Banks v. Thomas, supra, 581. The court held that "failure to file the writ of error within the prescribed time period did not require dismissal of the writ." Id., 582. After a thorough examination of the statute and its legislative history, our Supreme Court concluded that "noncompliance with the two week limitation period . . . did not deprive it of subject matter jurisdiction over a writ of error." Id., 586.
