Biasetti v. Stamford

In Biasetti v. Stamford, 250 Conn. 65, 735 A.2d 321 (1999), a police officer was involved in a shooting and attempted to recover for mental stress arising from the incident. The Court held that, under 31-275 (16) (B) (ii), although mental stress is an "occupational disease," "the legislature [did not intend] to extend coverage to an emotional impairment that is itself an occupational disease." Id., 80.
