2. CT Day Care Provider Verdict Reversed plus more than 170 FAQ and SIDS Research Information Articles

The Connecticut state Supreme Court on 11/25/02 reversed a jury verdict and found a Bolton day care provider could not be held liable for the sudden death of a baby who was sleeping on her stomach. Read the AP article at:
http://sids-network.org/experts/daycare_liability_overturned.htm
Originally, articles hit the news on January 31, 2001 regarding 'Day Care Owner Liable In SIDS Death'. The news refers to one of the first judgments of its kind in the state of Connecticut, where a six-member jury found the day care owner liable in the death of an infant who died 12/8/98 because she failed to take steps that might have prevented the child's death by allowing the infant to sleep on her stomach, even though she knew that particular sleeping position was associated with a higher risk of SIDS. More information at:
http://sids-network.org/experts/daycare_liability.htm 

The SIDS Network offers over 170 articles covering Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and SIDS research information. These articles can be found at:
