Russo v. Roberge (Ansonia-Milford Superior Court—filed January 21, 2020) Olivia Russo, a minor child residing in Shelton, CT, was attacked and bitten by a dog belonging to defendant Michael Roberge. The child sustained multiple puncture wounds and bites on her arm, requiring medical treatment and leaving significant scarring. In Connecticut, the owner of a dog is strictly liable for any bite unless the bite was due to the teasing or taunting of the alleged victim(s). There was no such evidence here. The minor plaintiff asked to pet the dog before approaching, and was encouraged by the owner that the dog was safe to pet, despite the fact that his dog had previously attacked at least one other person in the past. As a consequence of his reckless decision and failure to disclose the dog’s aggressive disposition, Olivia incurred painful, permanent injuries, as well as significant medical bills for hospital care, diagnostic imaging, treatment, and therapy.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
