COMMERCIAL LITIGATION: Appellate Court Affirms Dismissal Of Pro Se Lawsuit Where Recognizance Bond Not Filed As Required

In the pro se plaintiff’s lawsuit against his former attorneys, the defendants requested that the plaintiff file a signed recognizance bond.  The court ordered the plaintiff to furnish a recognizance bond on or before December 8, 2014.  Not having done so, the court dismissed the complaint on December 9.

On appeal, the Connecticut Appellate Court affirms, noting that the trial court had appropriately applied the statutes and Rules of Practice.  The Appellate Court further noted that the pro se plaintiff had not moved for an extension of time.
