Gladysz v. Planning & Zoning Commission

In Gladysz v. Planning & Zoning Commission, 256 Conn. 249, 255-56, 773 A.2d 300 (2001) the Court held that "a party claiming aggrievement submits to the court a jurisdictional question requiring the demonstration of a legally cognizable interest, i.e., a specific, personal legal interest in the subject property that is injured by a zoning decision . . . ." 256 Conn. at 258. By contrast, "a party who claims standing to apply submits an issue requiring an examination of many factors, including the balancing of present and possibly future interests that require a showing that the applicant is a real party in interest."
