R.I.S.C. affirms "Connecticut" Rule for Landlord Liability

The Rhode Island Supreme Court has affirmed the use of the "Connecticut" rule with respect to when a landlord has an obligation to begin removing snow and ice following a storm.  The rule states that the landlord does not have a duty to begin removing the snow or ice until the storm stops.  Nonetheless, the Court held that plaintiff's own inconsistent statements about the weather created an issue of fact that prevented summary judgment.
