I am regretting that I didn't study Latin in high school. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in State v. Lombardo Bros. Mason Contractors Inc., et al., 307 Conn. 106 (2012). Lombardo concerned a suit by the state, brought long after the statute of limitations had run, to recover the $15 million that the state spent fixing the shamefully shoddy construction of the University of Connecticut School of Law library. Even though the state was inexplicably late to the dance, the Court allowed its suit to proceed under the doctrine of nullum tempus occruitt regi ? which, near as I can figure, means "the State owns a time machine".
