Statement of Senior Associate Justice David M. Borden 

In my capacity as Senior Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, exercising the powers of Chief Justice pursuant to Section 51-3 of the Connecticut General Statutes, I have determined that the Judicial Branch should seek to intervene in support of the action being brought by Senior Justice William J. Sullivan to quash the subpoena issued by the Chairpersons of the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee. Intervention is appropriate and necessary to safeguard the important principle of the separation of powers. Steven D. Ecker of Cowdery, Ecker & Murphy has been retained to represent the interests of the Judicial Branch in this matter.

As I have previously indicated to the Chairpersons of the Judiciary Committee, I will appear voluntarily before the Committee on Tuesday, June 27, 2006, and welcome the opportunity to respond fully and fairly to all appropriate inquiries.
