Tort Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC45838 - Stanley v. Scott (“Although it is difficult to discern from the plaintiff’s appellate brief, the plaintiff appears to claim that the defendants, assistant state’s attorneys who prosecuted the plaintiff, illegally obtained his cell phone records and used them against him in his underlying criminal prosecution. The defendants contend, inter alia, that the plaintiff has abandoned his claims on appeal because he failed to adequately brief them. For the reasons that follow, we agree with the defendants that the plaintiff has failed to adequately brief any cognizable claim of error in relation to the court’s rendering of judgment in favor of the defendants and, therefore, has abandoned any claim on appeal. We therefore affirm the judgment of the trial court.”)
