A ruling by the U.S. District Court in Puerto Rico references Connecticut law in establishing proper notice to subcontractors by a surety considering them in default of their contractual obligations. The court found the surety had properly informed the subcontractors when it sent letters to a single address because, under a 1914 ruling in Connecticut, notice to one joint subcontractor qualified as notice to a second. "No reasonable fact finder could conclude that notice was improper and the court must adhere to Connecticut's interpretation of what constitutes proper notice," the federal court ruled.
