Supreme Court Victory
Professor Todd Fernow ’83, director of the Law School’s Criminal Clinics, has successfully argued for the appellant in AFSCME, Council 4, Local 1565 v. Department of Correction et al. in a case heard by Connecticut’s Supreme Court in September. In the opinion written by Justice Joette Katz ’77, the court affirmed that an arbitrator in a discharge proceeding involving a corrections officer cannot be permitted to use the officer’s entry into an accelerated rehabilitation program as evidence of wrongdoing.
