The plaintiff slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk.  She sued the property owner, a hospital, alleging negligence.  In a bench trial, the hospital presented evidence that a contractor spent several hours removing snow prior to the incident.  The trial court concluded that the plaintiff had failed to establish that the hospital had actual or constructive notice that there was ice on the sidewalk in question.  The Appellate Court affirms judgment for the hospital, noting that the plaintiff failed to prove how long the ice was on the sidewalk prior to her fall.  Diaz v. Manchester Memorial Hosp., AC 37204 (Dec. 15, 2015)
