The trial court properly dismissed this appeal by the plaintiff, Thomas DeSteph, from the final decision of the defendant, Howard Pitkin, commissioner of the Department of Banking. The decision made permanent a cease and desist order relating to the sale of securities in violation of the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act, C.G.S. §36b-2 and regulations promulgated thereunder and imposed a fine of $30,000 for three violations. The Appellate Court affirmed the trial court's judgment and adopted its memorandum of decision as the proper statement of the relevant facts, issues and applicable law. No useful purpose was found to repeat the lower court's discussion.
