The court strikes a negligence count and a public nuisance count that arose out of an allegedly defective basketball court in the Town of Branford.  The court holds that as to the negligence count, the defendant town was entitled to governmental immunity since the duties involved were discretionary in nature.  With regard to the nuisance count, the plaintiff failed to allege that the allegedly defective conditions had been created by a positive act of the municipality.  Crisco v. Branford (08/17/16)
