State v. Graham

In State v. Graham, 200 Conn. 9, 509 A.2d 493 (1986) the Court held that "the credibility of a witness may be impeached by the party calling him or her without a showing of surprise, hostility or adversity. A party may impeach his own witness in the same manner as an opposing party's witness and may demonstrate the witness' bias or bad character for veracity and may impeach the witness using prior inconsistent statements." Id., at 17.
