Suit Alleges that Middletown Police Misused Tasers, Killing City Man
The Estate of Efrain Carrion has filed suit in Middlesex Superior Court against a number of defendants, including the City of Middletown, its former acting Chief of Police, Patrick T. McMahon, and five City Police Officers. The complaint alleges that the defendants violated the late Mr. Carrion's civil rights and caused his death two years ago on May 24, 2010, when Mr. Carrion was 35 years of age. According to the complaint, police officers Elias Martz, James Prokop and Christopher Lundberg discharged their Tasers and administered electroshocks to Mr. Carrion a combined total of 34 times while he was handcuffed for his own protection, and even though he never was arrested or charged with committing a crime.

Was it Futile? The Legislature Changed the Law, But the 'Futility Exception' Lives On in Our Courts
Connecticut's corporation statutes allow shareholders to sue directors on behalf of the corporation. The statutes require the shareholder to first make demand on the corporation to take suitable action in all such cases.
