The Defendant Is An Attorney

The Connecticut Appellate Court affirmed judgment against a defendant attorney in a civil case involving breach of contract, fraud and unfair trade practices.

The court found that the attorney turned a simple action into a lengthy suit "raising claims that were baseless and at times all out lies. What makes this even more egregious is that [he] is an attorney admitted to practice in this state."

The court declined to review the claim that the court improperly admitted evidence relating to a disciplinary proceeding because the contention was not adequately briefed. Further, the court affirmed the award of punitive damages. (Mike Frisch)
