Authors: Mark K. Ostrowski

With regular frequency, cases of all types include a count alleging violation of Connecticut's Unfair Trade Practice Act ("CUTPA").  Although the Connecticut courts have done a good job in framing the standards by which a CUTPA violation is determined, the standards for measuring punitive damages is less certain. In this article, published in The Defense, Journal of the Connecticut Defense Lawyers Association, we explore briefly the circumstances under which punitive damages can be awarded and then discuss the various ways the courts have measured those damages.
