CT Appellate Court Rules on Case I Handled...

I spent months, it seemed, on this case in its early stages (endless pre-trial motions with a frustrating pro se on the other side) when I worked at Legal Aid in Hartford. I am happy to see how it turned out, and happy to see the law & econ twist to it (concerns about incentives, etc.). Great job, Attorney Pels. Reading the case made me miss Legal Aid a lot. And the Court did the right thing on both issues...

The landlord in the case, Mr. Ancona, is a colorful local character in Hartford - interested law students can have fun searching for his name (and his relatives) in Connecticut cases on Westlaw...
