PREMISES LIABILITY: Superior Court sets aside verdict where no evidence presented as to how long defect was present prior to fall
The Superior Court set aside a judgment in favor of the plaintiff in premises liability…
The Connecticut Appellate Court holds that since a nuisance is a condition on property, rather than the act that creates that condition, a design professional who designed an allegedly dangerous condition could not be held liable on a nuisance theory. The Appellate Court affirmed a lower court’s ruling that the plaintiff had failed to rebut the defendant’s evidence that it lacked control over the property where the allegedly defective condition was located.
