Habeas Appellate Court Opinions

by Townsend, Karen


AC44505 - Velasco v. Commissioner of Correction ("The court concluded that a certain ‘Settlement Agreement and Release’ the petitioner had entered into with the state of Connecticut in 2018 (settlement agreement) barred the petitioner’s habeas petition. On appeal, the petitioner argues that the settlement agreement is unenforceable because the terms of the release provision are unconscionable. We affirm the judgment of the habeas court.")
