The New York Times this morning has a fascinating story about two neighbors, eight redwood trees, a solar panel, and - yes - a criminal prosecution for violating a statute called the Solar Shade Act. This has it all: a parable of first-in-time vs. solar access, failure of bargaining, nuisance and conflicts between two environmental goals, and, perhaps, the law of unintended consequences. Great reading!
