PERSONAL INJURY: Superior Court grants summary judgment to defendant in defective highway action

Where the plaintiff was walking backward in the middle of the road and encountered a pothole, the Court notes the plaintiff could not prove that the pothole was the sole proximate cause of the alleged injury, as required to prevail in a defective highway action.

The court notes that General Statutes § 14-300c(a) requires that pedestrians walk on the edge of the road.
