• Connecticut Supreme Court
  • Norcott, J.
To obtain review of an unpreserved claim of constitutional error under the 1989 Connecticut Supreme Court case of State v. Golding, a defendant need only raise that claim in his main brief wherein he must, as stated in the 2009 Appellate Court decision in State v. Wright, "present a record that is [adequate] for review and affirmatively [demonstrate] that his claim is indeed a violation of a fundamental constitutional right;" and, to the extent that the Supreme Court's 2002 decision in State v. Ramos and its progeny requires an affirmative request for Golding review, those cases were overruled.
