seeking, inter alia, to recover proceeds allegedly due under
an insurance policy issued by the defendants, and for other
relief, brought to the Superior Court in the judicial
district of Hartford, where the court, Noble, J.,
denied the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and
granted the defendants' motion for summary judgment, and
rendered judgment thereon, from which the plaintiff appealed
to this court. Affirmed.

Bright, Devlin and Eveleigh, Js.
plaintiff, Charles H. Gaddy, appeals from the summary
judgment rendered by the trial court in favor of the
defendants, Mount Vernon Fire Insurance Company and United
States Liability Insurance Group. On appeal, the plaintiff
claims that the court improperly concluded that his claims
were barred by the applicable statute of limitations. We
claims raised by the plaintiff on appeal essentially are the
same claims he raised in the trial court when he opposed the
defendants' motion for summary judgment and argued in
favor of his own motion for summary judgment. We have
examined the record on appeal, including the briefs and
arguments of the parties, and we conclude that the judgment
of the trial court should be affirmed. The issues raised by
the plaintiff were resolved properly in the thoughtful and
comprehensive memorandum of decision filed by the trial
court, Noble, J. Because Judge Noble's
memorandum of decision also fully addresses the arguments
raised in the present appeal,  we adopt the trial
court's well reasoned decision as a statement of the
facts and the applicable law on those issues. See Gaddy
v. Mount Vernon Fire Ins. Co., Superior Court, judicial
district of Hartford, Docket No. CV-16-6066237-S (October 16,
2017) (reprinted at 192 Conn.App., A.3d). It would serve no
useful purpose for us to repeat those facts or the discussion
here. See, e.g., Tzovolos v. Wiseman, 300 Conn. 247,
253-54, 12 A.3d 563 (2011).

February 19, 2016, the plaintiff, Charles Gaddy, commenced
the present action against the defendants, the Mount Vernon
