State of Connecticut Office of the Claims Commissioner

Overview & Hearings

The legal concept of sovereign immunity provides that the state cannot be sued for monetary damages. Unless the legislature consents, the state cannot be held liable for any damage or injury it causes, or for the cost of any goods, services or benefits received by the state.

The Connecticut Constitution states, “Claims against the state shall be resolved in such manner as may be provided by law.” 

Pursuant to that constitutional provision, the legislature established a procedure for resolution of claims against the state in Chapter 53 of the General Statutes, and General Statutes section 54-102uu, both of which were recently amended by Public Act No. 16-127. The statutes require claims against the state to be presented to a Claims Commissioner who is appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the General Assembly.

The Office of the Claims Commissioner operates within the Department of Administrative Services for administrative purposes only, with independent decision-making authority.
