In the case of Almond Alliance vs Fish and Game Commission, what is the difference between bees having to be fish and insects having their own section in the CESA? Why not file for an amendment for the CESA to have a section for them?

They are removing the woods between us exposing our privacy. What rights to do we to protect our privacy ?. And what happens if these new townhouses block our well water or contaminate it?

He has paid for a replacement but who now owns the original, damaged gate?
answered on Jan 6, 2022
In most States the original owner still owns that personal property, junk or not. Since the neighbor paid for a new one, you might want to offer the destroyed gate to him. Especially since you did not have to sue him or make an insurance claim.
