Erick Sandler and John Cerreta co-authored an article in the October 2013 issue of Connecticut Lawyer, outlining the certification process in the state Supreme Court. They write: "In seeking to identify the best candidates for certification, both the second circuit and the District of Connecticut tend to focus on three core factors: the clarity of existing state law, the importance of the issue, and whether an answer to the certified question may determine the outcome of the pending federal case."
