Encyclopedia of Connecticut Causes of Action compiles all of the civil causes of action in Connecticut in one place. Common law actions, statutory actions and administrative appeals (which function in a similar manner to civil actions) are divided into separate parts for ease of identification. Also included is a separate section for the numerous miscellaneous statutory proceedings in Connecticut that share many, but not all, of the characteristics of civil actions. (Family and juvenile proceedings have been omitted.)
