Attorney Melchionne appointed to Connecticut Commission on Foreclosures

By special appointment the Connecticut Supreme Court Chief Justice, Chase Rogers, Attorney Melchionne has been added to the Court's Committee on foreclosures. The Committee is charged with addressing the coming flood of foreclosure cases in Connecticut. In some of the major cities, foreclosures have increased as much as 500% in the last few months and many more are expected over the next year. It will be necessary to adjust current Superior Court procedures and rules to both accommodate the increase as well as find ways to mediate foreclosure disputes allowing homeowners to keep their homes.
