(WTNH) — News 8 has confirmed the State Supreme Court has dismissed Attorney Norm Pattis’ appeal to lift the gag order issued in the criminal case against Fotis Dulos.
The State Supreme Court is citing Dulos’ death as the reason they dismissed the appeal.

“The gag order remains a repulsive stain on the state’s constitutional terrain. The Court’s decision to use Mr. Dulos’s death as a pretext for avoiding the issue is chilling.”
