Brown & Brown, Inc. v. Blumenthal Amicus Brief
The Connecticut Business & Industry Association, Inc. ("CBIA"), the Insurance Association of Connecticut ("lAC"), the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies ("NAMIC"), the American Insurance Association ("AlA"), and the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America ("PCIA") (collectively, the "Amici"), submit this brief to assist the Court as it determines the scope of protection that the Connecticut Antitrust Act, Conn. Gen. Stat. § 35-24 et seq. (the "Act"), affords to confidential, proprietary information obtained by the Connecticut Office of the Attorney General ("Attorney General") during an antitrust investigation, and to explain the sweeping implications of this case for the business community represented by Amici.
The Court granted permission to the Amici to fie a brief in the first appeal of this dispute, 288 Conn. 646 (2008) and the Amici filed a brief in that appeal.
