Of course it is! You stole a sign that belonged to the city that was doing replacements. Whether it was trash or not or abandoned might be e defense if you are accused or get caught.

I have been told that once a developer submits a site plan application they are protected from local ordinance changes or state regulation changes. I read the NJ Municipal Land Use Law as affording such protections only after an applicant receives Preliminary Site Plan approval.
if you are homeless and sitting on a curb in front of a fenced property where a sign is posted are you in violation of trespassing by just being near a sign or do you have to cross onto that property/pass the posted sign.

I think I understand your question to mean you were convicted in New Hampshire for a violation on 1/7/19 with a one year good behavior period. You want to get that conviction annulled but in August of 2019 you were arrested for a different charge in New York. I assume that charge is still pending?...Read more »

I read that Chapter 718 now requires condo associations to implement a website for the COA under 2018 changes to Florida law. I am president of a FL HOA governed by Chapter 720. I'm trying to locate the similar requirement under Chapter 720 law. Are HOAs also now required by law to... Read more »
