About the Program
A divided Connecticut Supreme Court has recently and controversially increased its use of its inherent supervisory authority, a power that allows the court to decide cases based on new rules that are not required by existing law but that the court finds preferable as a matter of policy. This program will feature a panel discussion on the history behind this inherent power, the court’s recent use of it (including in In re Yasiel, State v. Elson, and Blumberg Associates) and how it’s use of this power might impact future cases.
