1904 SAFEPLACE STATUTE: PUBLIC BUILDINGS: NEGLIGENCE OF OWNER
Give Wis JICivil 1005.
In addition, the defendant has the duty to comply with the provisions of the statutes of Wisconsin which define a "public building" as any structure used by the public or by three or more tenants and require that every owner of a public building shall so construct, repair, or maintain such public building as to render the same safe. The term "public building" means and includes any structure, including exterior parts of such building, such as a porch, exterior platform, or steps providing means of ingress or egress, used in whole or in part as a place of resort, assemblage, lodging, trade, traffic, occupancy, or used by the public or by three or more tenants.
(The defendant's building located at Street _________, at the time in question, was a public building under the provisions of the law just referred to.)
Another section of the Wisconsin statutes provides that the term "safe" or "safety" as applied to a public building means such freedom from danger to the life, health, safety, or welfare of the public as the public building will reasonably permit.
