Case summaries

Majority Shareholder’s Fiduciary Duty
Falcigno v. Falcigno, AC 42047, decided August 25, 2020. The Connecticut Appellate Court affirmed the trial court’s ruling that a majority stockholder did not breach his fiduciary duties by buying the minority stockholder’s shares before selling the company where his desire to sell the company was known, there were no pending offers, an alleged misrepresentation did not affect the minority stockholder’s decision to sell and the majority stockholder accurately explained the minority discount.
Statute of Limitations
Reclaimant Corp. v. Deutsch, 332 Conn. 590, decided August 6, 2019. The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that an unjust enrichment claim arising out of the limited partnership agreement of a Delaware LP was subject to Connecticut’s statute of limitations and not the statute of limitations in Delaware’s limited partnership act.
