Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC44229 - Gonzalez v. Commissioner of Correction (On appeal, the petitioner claims that (1) the court improperly concluded that he had not proven the requisite deliberate indifference to establish a violation under the eighth amendment to the United States constitution and (2) the respondent violated his rights under article first, §§ 8 and 9, of the state constitution. Both claims are predicated on the petitioner’s allegation that his continued confinement during the COVID-19 pandemic constitutes an unnecessary risk to his life. We affirm the judgment of the habeas court.)
