We’ve been having an interesting dust-up here in Boulder about adverse possession – a local couple prevailed on what seems to be a pretty ordinary adverse possession claim and a local columnist blasted the decision as an example of how out of control the Boulder “progressive” community is – “where common sense is occasionally as rare as a conservative's view of private property rights,” sparking a backlash that made it all the way to Fox News. And the New York Times a few days ago highlighted Gov. Spitzer’s veto of a bill in New York that would have barred adverse possession “if the person making the claim had ‘actual knowledge’ that the property was owned by someone else,” according to the Times. Who knew AP would be such a hot topic again?
UPDATE: Eduardo Penalver has more thoughts on the Boulder case.
