Where the plaintiff that alleged that a dance floor was too crowded to be safe, the Superior Court held that a claim was stated for premises liability.  The plaintiff was attending a wedding reception and allegedly slipped and fell while dancing.  The owner and operator moved to strike on the grounds that the plaintiff failed to state a cause of action.  The motion was denied.  Allegations that the defendant possessed and controlled the dance floor, and that the dance floor was dangerous because it was overly crowded were sufficient to state a cause of action for premises liability.  Orsini v. Pequabuck Golf Club of Bristol, CV-15-6026584 (September 21, 2015 Brazzel-Massaro, J.)
