The Connecticut Supreme Court decided Doe v. The Boy Scouts of America Corp., S.C. 19516.  The Court reversed the judgment of $11,854,166.11 and ordered a new trial.  The defendant was represented by Attorneys Horton and Levesque. The defendant provided the following comment:

 

  “The Boy Scouts of America is pleased that the court overturned the ruling and we are reviewing the court’s opinions in this case.

 

These incidents from nearly four decades ago run counter to everything for which the BSA stands. Youth protection is of paramount importance to the Boy Scouts of America and our organization has always focused on the best interests of our youth.

 

In the nearly 40 years since these events took place we have continued to develop and enhance our efforts to protect youth, regularly consulting with experts from law enforcement, child safety, psychology, and other disciplines to ensure our efforts consistently evolve along with the ever-changing awareness of the dangers and challenges facing youth.

 

For more information about the BSA’s youth protection policies, please visit http://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/key-topics/youth-protection/.”

The one-hour program was presented in two parts.  In the first part, students from Bloomfield High School presented their findings with regard to whether criminal defendants received the same or greater procedural protections under our state constitution in comparison with the federal constitution.  The student presentations examined the good faith exception to the exclusionary rule, warrantless arrests, seizures, and counsel’s attempts to contact a defendant. The students studied comparable cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court and the Connecticut Supreme Court with Attorneys Anthony Shannon, Chris Engler and Kim Knox and UCONN Law student Nico Piscopo. At the conclusion of the presentations, the students received a certificate of recognition from Chief Justice Rogers. In the second part of the program, there was a re-enactment of State of Connecticut v. Castelli, a 1917 case.  The case was introduced by Jonathan Weiner, and argued by Attorney Brendon Levesque for the defendants and Attorney Greg D’Auria for the state.  Justices Rogers, Zarella and Robinson formed an active bench. In the dissenting opinion in Castelli, Justice Wheeler, recognized the need for a Miranda-like warning nearly 50 years prior to the Miranda decision. It was a historically relevant and significant case. The program was attended by members of this historical society, clerks, lawyers, judges, Bloomfield High students, Capital Prep students, and Our Lady of Mercy students.
