Seems fair? I think not

Poor Mr. Wess and wife. First they build a boat pier that encroaches on their neighbor’s land. Then the neighbor loses it and hires a sheriff’s deputy as a hit man to do away with Wess (not a good idea). Wess winds up with a court-ordered easement allowing his dock to stay. The neighbor winds up serving a five year sentence.

Seems fair? I think not – after all, the Wesses haven’t made any money from this. So they sue all of their neighbors (the Lake of the Pines Homeowners Association) for $5 million. Surely those neighbors will see the justice in their association handing over $2,500 per member to the Wesses. After all, Mr. Wess says, “The biggest thing I want is to be treated fairly.” Sure.
