In State v. Deptula, 31 Conn. App. 140, 142, 623 A.2d 525 (1993), appeal dismissed, 228 Conn. 852, 635 A.2d 812 (1994), the defendant claimed that the trial court improperly failed to charge the jury on self-defense. The state challenged the review of that issue on appeal because of the defendant's noncompliance with Practice Book 852, now 42-16. Id., 144. Despite the defendant's noncompliance, the Deptula court reviewed the defendant's claim on the merits. Id., 147.
