Plaintiff suffered injuries, due to the faulty insulation of defendant's transformer, while using the premises for toilet purposes. There was evidence of a similar past use by various persons other than the plaintiff, access being gained through a hole in defendant's fence. There was no record of any lease between the defendant and the owner of the land. Plaintiff seeks to recover for defendant's negligence. Defendant's demurrer was sustained below. Plaintiff brings exceptions. Held, plaintiff being a trespasser, the declaration fails to allege a breach of any duty owing to him. Roe v. Naragansett Electric Co., (R. I. 1933) 166 Atl. 695.
