Precedent-Setting Unfair Trade Practice Claim

Print Page

Attorney Minchella briefed and argued before the Connecticut Appellate Court the seminal case in which the Court held for the first time that a single deceptive act by a business could violate Connecticut’s unfair trade practice statute, commonly known as CUTPA.

Prior to this case, Johnson Electric v Salce Contracting Associates, Connecticut courts required multiple deceptive acts before imposing liability under CUTPA. Attorney Minchella not only persuaded the Appellate Court to reverse the trial court’s decision, but convinced the court to direct judgment in his client’s favor.
