Molinas v. Commissioner of Correction

In Molinas v. Commissioner of Correction, 231 Conn. 514, 652 A.2d 481 (1994), the court allowed a habeas court to order the remission of a fine, which the petitioner had not requested as a remedy, because the habeas court was statutorily empowered to do so. Molinas does not, however, grant unlimited authority to the court to devise any remedy that it finds appropriate or to address an issue not raised in the habeas petition.
