Cupina v. Bernklau
In Cupina v. Bernklau, 17 Conn. App. 159, 551 A.2d 37 (1988), the Court explained the distinction between 52-576 and 52-581. "These two statutes, each establishing a different period of limitation, can both be interpreted to apply to actions on oral contracts.
The Court has distinguished the statutes, however, by construing 52-581, the three year statute of limitations, as applying only to executory contracts." Id., at 163.
