CBA Responds to Courthouse Closings Announcement

"While courthouse closings were expected given the current state budget situation, we see today’s announcement as the start of a process. Reducing citizen access to the judicial system by closing courthouses harms everyone, especially the poor. The Connecticut Bar Association believes that access to the courts is a fundamental right, critical to preserving the Rule of Law. We will continue our ongoing dialogue with lawmakers to determine whether there is a better way to achieve necessary costs savings, reverse these decisions, and keep open as many courthouses as possible."
