Third Time Is No Charm

The Connecticut Appellate Court affirmed the dismissal of a claim on statute of limitations grounds. The case arose out of a law firm's representation of a client in a foreclosure action. The alleged mishandling of the case resulted in a claim of legal malpractice against the law firm. The alleged mishandling of that case led to a lawsuit alleging legal malpractice against the lawyer retained to prosecute the malpractice case. Here, the second malpractice case was dismissed as untimely.

Is a fourth suit in the offing? Would it require proof of a case within a case within a case within a case? (Mike Frisch)
