Homeowners Hate This 1 Property Rule!
Posted on Friday July 23, 2021
As a person who up till very recently was studying for the bar (apparently you have to register for it to take the test), I have been fighting the urge to IRAC literally every image I’ve come across. This picture u/Kingofsunnyvale posted of a neighbor who build a fence through their neighbor’s boat ramp after finding out they owned a corner of the property was too good to not share.
What’s happening on this episode of Life Imitates Bar prep? Spite fence?! 1st Amendment violation? Mens rea? I don’t know what any of these words mean, but I hope you do. Good luck, bar takers!
