Connecticut Appellate Court Recognizes Common Law Action for Damages Against Landlord Who is Not Owner/Keeper of Dog

In the recent Connecticut Appellate Court case of Giacalone v. Housing Authority of the Town of Wallingford, the court held that a plaintiff could file a common law negligence claim for monetary damages against a landlord who had prior notice of the dangerous propensities of a dog without proving that the landlord was the owner or keeper of the dog.  This important case will allow many more victims of dog attacks to recover compensation for their injuries and damages.  It will also assist in holding more people accountable for their negligence in connection with dog attacks.
