Thank you so much again, Lucy, this is really clarifying as Sec 52-605 (b) of CT Gen. Statutes is a bit confusing for a non-practician.However, in the following scenario : new evidence was found very recently that the property had been inspected while the defendants were absent (residing elsewhere) by the Insurer prior to accepting a new claim to raise the amount of the compensation of damages, after the Insurer had brought forward that the repairs had to be done prior to the release of the extended claim. An eye-witness and neighbor, with which the defendants had lost contacts, has seen the inspectors accessing the property. There is a possible discovery violation behind this as well, after the defendants had ordered a full copy of the subpoenaed record of the insurance claim to their opponent. it seems that the inspection report agreeing to the repairs was subtracted by the opponent. Therefore, due diligence was done by defendants but their efforts were hindered by their opponent.Is this not a scenario where Defendants could file a motion to vacate to the CT Court, arguing that this is the appropriate remedy in the light that they will also file a motion to recuse the judge of the court of origin and other arguments?The demonstration that the repairs were done would ruin opponent's claim of unjust enrichment.In other words, the question is whether the Full Faith and Credit Clause is applicable here and limits the interpretation of the CT Statute here above ?
Thank you for the info.
However I did not make my question clear enough. The CT Statutes I am referring to is the following :
UNIFORM ENFORCEMENT OF FOREIGN JUDGMENTSSec 52-605 (b):
(b) Such foreign judgment shall be treated in the same manner as a judgment of a court of this state. A judgment so filed has the same effect and is subject to the same procedures, defenses and proceedings for reopening, vacating or staying as a judgment of a court of this state and may be enforced or satisfied in like manner.
My question is: does this CT Statute not allow to re-open the judgment domesticated IN THE STATE of CT , based on new evidence in the nature to void the claim of the opponent ?
