NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — Retired Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Angelo Santaniello, who wrote more than 100 majority opinions during his nine years on the high court, has died. He was 90.
The longtime New London resident died Sunday, according to a spokesman for the Impellitteri-Malia Funeral Home in New London.
The cause and location of Santaniello’s death weren’t immediately available.
Santaniello grew up in New London and graduated from the College of the Holy Cross and Georgetown University Law School. He became a state judge in 1966 and served on the Supreme Court from 1985 until 1994, having been nominated to the high court by then-Gov. William A. O’Neill.
Former Chief Justice Ellen Ash Peters said in a 1994 speech that Santaniello was especially noted for his work settling cases at the appellate level.
