These charges are instructions given to the jury so they know how to apply the law of the State of Connecticut to the facts of your case. Some of the issues to be decided by the jury are Notice and Control so the judge might charge the jury as follows:

Notice and/or Control.  A plaintiff who alleges that (he/she) suffered injuries resulting from a defective premises must prove two other items: first, that the defendant was in control of the premises; and second, that the defendant had notice of the defect.

As to the issue of notice, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant knew or should have known of the existence of the condition that the plaintiff alleges was a defect.
