Contracts Keyed to Ayres
Douthwright v. Northeast Corridor Foundations
Citation:72 Conn. App. 319.
Plaintiff filed a motion for a default judgment, because the defendant didn’t fully pay their share of an oral settlement agreement. The agreement stated that the plaintiff was entitled to 3.2 million dollars as damages for a work accident. The agreement stated that the defendant would pay 2.5 million dollars of that total on a certain date. In March 2011, the defendants denied that settlement agreement imposed a requirement that they pay the remaining total immediately. Later in the month, the parties appeared before the court for the default judgment. Before that appearance, the defendants sent the plaintiff a check for 1.5 million dollars, past its due date, that did not include any of the interest owed. The trial court decided in favor of the plaintiff and gave them a judgment for the amount of interest owed.
