Q: case was dismissed after completing AR. On my paperwork it says "This Case is a Non- Disclosable Dismissal" Explain?
had a case dismissed 12/2021 after completing AR. I had requested my disposition from the Clerk's Office and on the document it says *This case is a Non-Disclosable Dismissal* & This case was disposed of on 12/2021. What Does a Non Disclosable Dismissal mean?
A: A case that is nolled is automatically dismissed 13 months after the nolle was entered. Once a case has been dismissed you are allowed under CT statutes to say you have never been arrested before. These cases are "non-disclosable" because admitting that there was a case in the first place may violate the intent of dismissing and erasing the case.
