Hmm... so how far can one take the Attractive nuisance doctrine do you think? For instance, if someone cuts their wrist smashing a car window that they're breaking in to and bleeds out, can they sue? I see it includes trampolines as an example. If a drunk teenage wandered on their property and bounced on their unfenced trampoline, fell and broke his neck...lawsuit?

I'm glad we don't have things like this in NZ, not that I've heard about anyway. People need to take responsibility for their actions. Obviously, the original intention of the law, about children and trespassing, is fair enough to a degree. I'm sure you'd be held liable here if a child drowned in your unfenced swimming pool.

Here the fence must be huge at a pool. Liability laws is why diving boards are a thing of the past here. Back yard in ground pools are fading here. I know of several that have been filled in.

Same here in Az...5' high. Until recently, I had a 1 acre, 10' deep Bass Pond (unfenced) in my front lawn. It is legal here because there are no regulations regarding Bass Ponds. However, my pool, which is miniscule by comparison must be fenced because pools are considered to be an "attractive nuisance". Go figure??? Not a lot of reason in some codes.

I hate thieves, but on an unrelated note, I found a sweet black Shogun 7005 upgraded to Deore XT with a full Topeak kit that some prick was throwing away in inner east Melbourne. An $850 bike for free! What a "steal"!

If the punk bleeds out...he's dead. The dead don't sue. :wink:

The states have "Attractive Nuisance" laws. It is why substations are locked and you can be sued when a neighbor kid jumps the short fence and drowns in your backyard pool.


That doesn't sound right, fighting Darwinism. Still, babies are stupid.

You are all giving me a lot to think about


I really like this one by potatoflinger :) make sure you don't get caught in your own traps.

The laws vary from country to country. I can't say I've really read up on them either. However it doesn't really surprise me, for England is known for strict gun laws.

"Castle Doctrine" is becoming the law in more state these days. I'm sure it varies from state to state, but Arizona allows the use of lethal force to defend life OR property. That applies not just on your own property, but anywhere within the state.

No permit required here for concealed carry.
