Connecticut’s Police Billfirst-read highlights

On the heels of Colorado’s sweeping police-reform bill, Connecticut has just passed its own new law, “An Act Concerning Police Accountability”, number 6004.

Here are my notes from my first quick read through. I’m particularly struck by their adoption of a cause of action for violations of rights, along with limits on qualified immunity, as we also saw in Colorado.
