The Connecticut Superior Court enforces a one year contractual time limit in a homeowners’ policy. The plaintiff homeowner negotiated with the insurer regarding a property damage claim, and believed that the case would settle. The court rejected the plaintiff’s argument that he could not file an affidavit in opposition to the defendant’s summary judgment motion based on his having sustained a debilitating stroke. Enforcing the one year time limitation, the court grants summary judgment for the insurer.
