The nonsense is here! I am not a lawyer, but I am pretty sure that if you abandon property (stretching the definition of "property" to get you foolishness into view) that I did not ask for on my property, I am am pretty sure that not only can I abate the nuisance, I in doing so have a tort claim against you for the damage and the cost of abatement.

Too bad I'm no longer bright enough to read my own .sig! Among other things, it says there from time to time:

"Ex turpi causa non oritur actio" which I believe to be Lawyer Latin for "No cause of action may be founded upon an immoral or illegal act".

(Thanks for the quotation.)
