HARTFORD, CT - Governor Dannel P. Malloy on Tuesday announced that he is nominating Gregory T. D’Auria of Hebron to serve as an associate justice on the Connecticut Supreme Court.

“For over two decades, Greg has distinguished himself as a talented appellate lawyer on behalf of Connecticut, serving in the Attorney General’s Office and advocating for the best interests of the people of our state on a variety of critical matters,” Governor Malloy said. “Being nominated to our state’s highest court is an immense responsibility – it has the final say on so many issues that impact all of our lives and must ensure that our valued constitutional principles are upheld with fairness, competence, ethics, and justice. I am pleased to nominate Greg to the Supreme Court and I am confident that his history of public service will continue with distinction on the bench.”

“I am honored by and thankful to Governor Malloy for his trust in me. I have devoted much of my career to practicing before our state Supreme Court and understand fully the tremendous responsibility that accompanies this position,” D’Auria said. “If the General Assembly confirms me, the Governor’s nomination will allow me the chance to continue to serve the state's citizens, which has been my privilege during 23 years working for the Attorney General’s Office.”

For over 23 years, D’Auria has worked in the Office of the Attorney General in a variety of roles, including his current position as Associate Attorney General/Solicitor General, which he has held since 2011. In that capacity, he has primarily focused on supervising the appellate litigation for the agency and also served in the role of training and assisting other attorneys throughout the agency on state and federal appeals. Prior to that, D’Auria headed the Special Litigation and Charities unit, and also served as Associate Attorney General for Litigation.

In 2009, he was nominated and inducted as a fellow into the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, a distinguished national organization that works to advance the administration of justice and promote the highest standards of professionalism and advocacy in appellate courts.

He graduated UConn in 1985 with a B.A. in Political Science, and from the UConn School of Law in 1988, where he also served as editor-in-chief of the Connecticut Journal of International Law.

D’Auria will fill the spot on the bench previously held by Associate Justice Peter T. Zarella, who retired from the court in December. The nomination will be forwarded to the General Assembly for confirmation.
