"Opening Our Doors" Program

WATERBURY The Judicial Branch, as part of its Opening Our Doors tour program, is sponsoring a presentation Friday, Oct. 12, 2001, on two unique dockets in Waterbury -- one dealing with complex litigation, the other, Community Court.

Members of the Legislative and Executive Branches are invited, along with the news media. Those interested in attending "The Judicial Branch Spectrum: From Community Court to Complex Litigation" are asked to arrive at the Waterbury Courthouse, 400 Grand St., by 9 a.m.

Waterbury's Community Court has been open for a year. The court is designed to address "quality-of-life" crimes such as public drinking, petty larcenies, and breach of peace.

Some of Connecticut's most challenging civil cases often are referred to the complex litigation docket. These lawsuits typically involve multiple litigants, intricate legal issues or multimillion-dollar claims. As of Aug. 23, 2001, there were 861 complex litigation cases pending statewide. Besides Waterbury, complex litigation dockets are available in New Britain, Norwich, Stamford, and Tolland.

The tour is the sixth this year under the 4-year-old Opening Our Doors program. Other programs have dealt with the habeas docket, adult probation sex offender units, jury service, and family violence and family relations.

Members of the news media interested in attending should contact the Judicial Branch before the event. To RSVP or for information, call Manager of Communications Rhonda Stearley-Hebert, External Affairs Division, 757-2270.
