State v. Kulmac

In State v. Kulmac, 230 Conn. 43, 58, 644 A.2d 887 (1994), the Court held that to compel an in camera review of qualified confidential records pursuant to the sixth amendment right to confront witnesses, a defendant must make a preliminary showing that the failure to produce the information is likely to impair his right of confrontation. To meet that burden, a defendant must do more than simply assert that the requested files may contain information that would be useful for the purpose of impeaching the victim's credibility. Id., at 56-57.
