Connecticut Judicial Branch website provides public access to Supreme
Court and Appellate Court opinions both as advance release opinions and
as officially published in the Connecticut Law Journal. Opinions
are available from July 4, 2000 as advance release opinions.
Official opinions published in the Connecticut Law Journal are available
online as of June 13, 2017.
Advance release opinions are opinions that are released in advance of their official publication in the Connecticut Law Journal, for the convenience of the public and the bar.
The "officially released" date that appears near the beginning of
each opinion is the date the opinion will be published in the
Connecticut Law Journal or the date it was released as a slip opinion.
The operative date for the beginning of all time periods for filing
post-opinion motions and petitions for certification is the "officially
released" date appearing in the opinion.
All opinions are subject to modification and technical correction prior to official publication in the Connecticut Reports and Connecticut Appellate Reports. In the event of discrepancies between the advance release version of an opinion and the latest version appearing in the Connecticut Law Journal and subsequently in the Connecticut Reports or Connecticut Appellate Reports, the latest version is to be considered authoritative.
The syllabus and procedural history accompanying the opinion as it appears in the Connecticut Law Journal and bound volumes of official reports are copyrighted by the Secretary of the State, State of Connecticut, and may not be reproduced and distributed without the express written permission of the Commission on Official Legal Publications, Judicial Branch, State of Connecticut.
