Certification was improvidently granted on the issues of whether the Appellate Court properly determined that Connecticut General Statutes §52-72 and §52-46a did not deprive the trial court of subject matter jurisdiction and the defendants waived any challenge to a lack of in personam jurisdiction. In this action brought by Rebecca Merrill, the trial court granted the motion to dismiss of the defendants, NRT New England, Inc., NRT New England, LLC, Karen Godfrey and V. Holly Hoyt, for lack of personal jurisdiction due to insufficient service of process. The plaintiff appealed. The Appellate Court reversed the judgment concluding that the trial court had subject matter jurisdiction and that the defendants waived any claim that the court lacked personal jurisdiction. The Supreme Court granted the defendants' petition for certification to appeal limited to the issues of whether the Appellate Court properly determined that C.G.S. §52-72 and §52-46a did not deprive the court of subject matter jurisdiction and that the defendants waived any challenge to a lack of in personam jurisdiction. After examining the record on appeal and considering the parties' briefs and oral arguments, the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal on the ground that certification was improvidently granted.
