This decision extensively analyzes the trivial defect doctrine as applied to sidewalk discontinuities.  It rejects the defendant city’s argument that the 1-3/4″ discontinuity in this case was trivial as a matter of law.  A defect of that height generally is left to the jury to evaluate.  Also, the court’s holistic consideration of other surrounding circumstances led it to reject the city’s argument and uphold the jury verdict against the city.
