Legal Malpractice Appellate Court Opinion

by Mazur, Catherine


AC40203 - Dubinsky v. Black ("The plaintiff, David Dubinsky, appeals from the summary judgment rendered in favor of the defendant, Kevin M. Black, in this legal malpractice action predicated on the defendant's alleged failure to advise the plaintiff that his acceptance of a plea offer in a criminal proceeding would preclude him from subsequently pursuing an action for malicious prosecution. In rendering summary judgment, the court concluded, as a matter of law, that the plaintiff could not prevail on such an action, as probable cause existed to charge him with the crime of risk of injury to a child in violation of General Statutes ยง 53-21. The plaintiff now challenges the propriety of that determination. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
