Jacoby v. Brinckerhoff

In Jacoby v. Brinckerhoff, 250 Conn. 86, 95, 735 A.2d 347 (1999) the Court did not definitively close the door on the viability of a loss of consortium claim in the absence of a predicate cause of action, suggesting that another factual scenario may have led to another result. In Jacoby, the plaintiff husband failed to present evidence that his wife's mental impairment was the reason she did not bring a negligence case in her own behalf.
