Tetro v. Stratford

In Tetro v. Stratford, 189 Conn. 601, 458 A.2d 5 (1983), the court held that police officers conducting an otherwise valid police chase were not relieved "from their general duty to exercise due care for the safety of others. . . . Section 14-283 provides no special zone of limited liability once the defendants' negligence has been established." Id., 609-10. In that case, the plaintiff recovered for damages resulting from substantial injuries arising out of a police pursuit of a suspected law violator.
