In this video attorney Peter Bartinik, Jr. explains what is an answer in a civil case in Connecticut.  An example of a civil case is a car accident case arising in Southeastern, Connecticut.  In the answer, the defendant must address each and every paragraph in the plaintiff's complaint and must state whether they admit or deny each allegation.  If they defendant does not have enough information to admit or deny, then the defendant can state that they "lack the knowledge to form a belief, and they leave the plaintiff to his proof."  The answer is the defendant's response to the plaintiff's complaint.
