The Superior Court grants judgment to the defendant school based on governmental immunity.  The plaintiff was on a trail about 500 feet from the high school when the fall occurred, when the plaintiff’s girlfriend fell and the plaintiff attempted to catch her,  and was injured.  The court stated that the alleged defect was not temporary or of short duration and therefore there was no imminent harm.  Coriano v. Ansonia, 10/6/14
