Law Talk


Our guest was atty. Patrick Tomasiewicz, owner of Fazzano & Tomasiewicz in Hartford.  We spoke about the civil law regarding sexual abuse claims against both institutions and individuals (including the recent extensions of the Statute of Limitations).  We also reviewed the law regarding defamation, with a focus on internet and social media defamation.  Finally, we spoke about the advantages and disadvantages of Connecticut’s unique way to select Jurors in civil matters.  Jury selection for a case in the Federal Court at 450 Main st. might take a couple of hours.  If you take that exact same case and pick a jury in State Court at 95 Washington St (less than a mile away), it may take several days.
