Barrese v. DeFillippo

In Barrese v. DeFillippo, 45 Conn. App. 102, 109, 694 A.2d 797 (1997), the Court held that "a jury charge . . . is to be read as a whole without the dissection of its parts. It will not be the source of reversible error absent a determination that the probable effect of the charge was to lead the jury to an incorrect verdict. . . . The charge must be examined to determine whether it fairly presents a case to the jury so that no injustice results and it is not to be examined with a legal microscope, to search for technical flaws, inexact, inadvertent or contradictory statements."
