Hope v. Cavallo
In Hope v. Cavallo, 163 Conn. 576, 316 A.2d 407 (1972), the Court stated that:
"the term 'owner' is one of general application and includes one having an interest other than the full legal and beneficial title. . . . The word owner is one of flexible meaning, and it varies from an absolute proprietary interest to a mere possessory right. . . . It is not a technical term and, thus, is not confined to a person who has the absolute right in a chattel, but also applies to a person who has possession and control thereof."
