    Whew! I was afraid this might be another manscaping thread.

    I feel your pain. One of the many reasons I moved away from "civilization". I don't think there is a hedge within 10 miles of here. Good luck, stay out of trouble and remember, a hedge can always grow back. IMG_3104.JPG

    Sometimes a lawyer can be your friend.

    Stop the quid pro quo and just sue their asses for whatever your lawyer can think of. Deliberate infliction of emotional distress is always a good one!

    When the process server delivers the paperwork, you will have succeeded in getting their attention.

    That's not nearly as fun as my method.

    Ron Jeremy isn’t a lawyer, but he has ways of intimidation.

    "Quid pro quo" is, in most cases, defined as "a favor for a favor" but your use in this case is acceptable. But "a favor for a favor" is the best definition. Quid pro quo in Latin means "I give, so that you may give". But, I digress.

    If need be, I'll take her to small claims court. I have never lost a small claims case. I learned, from The People's Court of all places, that a mountain of evidence carries the most weight. I'm nearly there. The more elegant would be to defeat her outside of court. My next move will happen next Monday when I file a complaint about her dogs. I'll win that one because of my evidence. There is no city ordinance forbidding lights so she could actually buy a 1000 watt metal halide fixture and train that on my residence but I build power lines and I'm well educated on lighting so it would be the equivalent of her, figuratively, stepping into the ring against a prize fighter.

    A little something that I learned from a career in the music industry...or should I say...the contracts that spew forth from a career in the music industry...

    The phrase "Attorney's Fees" will strike terror into the heart of even the most steely of opponents.

    While actual and punitive damages may amount to thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in a circumstance as described...

    The attorney fees can exceed many many times that. Often a provision in a contract, or relevant statute, which contains those two words, can make all the difference!

    I never wasted my time in small claims. I found those words sufficient to bring an end to all but one of the several disputes I found myself involved in. In the one, the attorneys fees exceeded $70,000. Which I recovered...though I had to chase the bastard to Canada to recover the last $40k.

    Or tit for tat!

    Nothing worse than neighbor problems. I wish you the best, but it seems this might get worse before it gets better. Just don't do anything to get yourself into trouble.

    You need our good fortune of the next neighbor being a federal judge.

    After some crazies it is abundantly clear our new neighbors are wonderful and you'd not stereotype the woman as a judge but you can tell she's a listener and considerate person.

    We thought that house would bet another crazy or out there family but wow what a relief.

    When we did have crazies there we took the high road and avoiding conflict proved best. I suggest that if it can possibly work. The city and a few times the police always sided with the chill and reasonable neighbors when those other people were there.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that this will end well.

    I'm happy for my neighbours to trim my ivy, someone's got to do it and i'd rather it wasn't me. I just wish they'd cut my lawn while they were at it. It's looking really untidy out there.
