John M. Glover Agency v. RDB Building, LLC
In John M. Glover Agency v. RDB Building, LLC, 60 Conn. App. 640, 760 A.2d 980 (2000) the defendant claimed that the trial court failed to apply a statute to the circumstances of the case. A review of that issue was dependent on the facts found by the attorney fact finder.
The defendant had supplied the Appellate Court with a transcript of the hearing before the fact finder, but had not supplied one to the trial court. This court concluded that "to review the transcript and judge the trial court's decision is appeal by ambuscade, a practice to which we do not adhere . . . ." Id., 60 Conn. App. at 646-47.
