There are a number of good state-oriented legal blogs out there. Connecticut’s Kirby’s Reports is an excellent one, and while it’s primarily aimed at lawyers in the Nutmeg State, the fact that it summarizes all the recent Connecticut decisions means there’s often good stuff there for Contracts profs.
Two recent posts, for example, on cases involving arbitration agreements. In Board of Education v. Nonnewaug Teachers' Assn., the court held that an arbitration agreement was broad enough to include issues that the parties could not have anticipated, while in Industrial Risk Insurers v. Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection & Ins. Co., the court refused to even consider a claim that the arbitral award was unsupported by the evidence. The site has links to the decisions.
