Superior Court of Connecticut
736 A.2d 946 (1999)
Irving, Dubicki, and Camassar (defendants) were attorneys and partners in a limited liability partnership law firm. Margaret Kus (plaintiff) brought suit against them, claiming that Irving induced her to sign a fee agreement that provided him with extremely high fees, and that Irving took fees in excess of what was permitted under the fee agreement. Dubicki and Camassar now move for summary judgment, claiming that they did not know of the dealings between Irving and Kus until after they were concluded, and that, pursuant to the partnership agreement, Irving did not share any of his fees with the other partners. Dubicki and Camassar argue that they are protected from liability under General Statutes § 34-327.
