Tort Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Booth, George


AC38945 - Shook v. Bartholomew (Negligence; reviewability of claim that trial court improperly refused to instruct jury that it could apportion liability on basis of comparative fault as requested in proposed charge; "In these consolidated actions, the defendants, Ashley Bartholomew and her employer, Eastern Connecticut Health Network, Inc., appeal from the judgments of the trial court, rendered in favor of the plaintiff in both actions, Herbert Shook, following a jury trial. On appeal, the defendants claim that the court improperly (1) refused to instruct the jury on apportionment of liability on the basis of comparative negligence despite the submission of a request to charge on that doctrine, (2) permitted the plaintiff to introduce evidence regarding his driving history, and (3) denied their motion to set aside the verdict. We affirm the judgments of the trial court.")
