Where a plaintiff who was injured when she tripped and fell during a conference hosted by the defendant at a large sports arena won a jury award for $280,000 on her personal injury claim, the judgment is affirmed because the plaintiff showed that a boutique shop was occupied by the defendant with the intent to control the area, and the trial court did not err in excluding evidence of the arena operator’s rights under its licensing agreement as irrelevant or in excluding evidence of the operator’s involvement in the conference since it did not tend to prove that the defendant was not in possession of the boutique area.
Judgment is affirmed.
