With Supreme Court speculation continuing, Connecticut legislators are looking to safeguard rights resulting from past decisions. University of Hartford Jilda Aliotta explained how that might work in a recent Hartford Courant article.  

Connecticut lawmakers will be considering legislation to codify several Supreme Court decisions into state statute, including education rights for undocumented children, rights for married couples, and rights for the accused during and after an arrest.

Aliotta explained to the Courant that as the Supreme Court has seen new appointees, the court has grown sharply divided, rather than gaining middle-of-the-road perspectives.

Aliotta, an associate professor of politics, economics, and international studies at UHart’s College of Arts and Sciences, has studied judicial decision-making as well as the Supreme Court, and teaches courses in law.
