We see it in state after state. A family in McNary Estates, Marion County, wanted to install a privacy screen to keep their Down’s Syndrome kid from wandering off into the golf course. The youngster was once hit by a golf ball.
McNary Estates lawyers screamed “It’s not in the law. Besides the kid isn’t even a member of the family. He just stays there a lot!”
Well, the son stays in the home all the time now.
The court fight was waged, thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars were spent. The homeowners of McNary Estates, of course, will get hit with a special assessment to pay for the meanness of their lawyers and their Board of Directors.
McNary Estates, Oregon, of course, has lost a little prestige in the eyes of the community.
But a little boy now has privacy screens to protect him. A Circuit Judge said so.
