The Encyclopedia of Connecticut Causes of Action has recently been added to the library’s third floor reference collection. Written by University of Connecticut Law School alumni Daniel Krisch ‘99 and Michael Taylor ‘94, the book is meant to help identify a potential cause of action based on a given set of facts and to properly allege the elements of that action. It compiles all of the civil causes of action in Connecticut - common law actions, statutory actions, and administrative appeals are divided into separate parts for ease of identification. Also included is a separate section for the numerous miscellaneous statutory proceedings that share many of the characteristics of civil actions.
Relevant statutes of limitations are included where applicable, along with a "notes" section that provides any rules or procedures that must be followed in pursuing a given action. An extensive common word index and a table of cases and statutes are also included. Click here for the table of contents.
