The branches of a tree in our yard extend into a neighbor's yard space. The neighbor states that he would prefer not to pay a tree service himself to trim the branches.

A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Until you consult with a local attorney for specific property law, the short answer nationwide is that one could be liable for damage their overhanging tree causes to a neighbor's property. Good luck

If two consenting adults agree to engage in mutual combat under supervision of a referee in an enclosed area and all guidelines were met eg.. both parties agree, understand the engagement rules, and agree to end the fight upon a retreat or the inability to continue could legal proceedings occur?
answered on Nov 12, 2022
Yes, both parties may be charged pursuant to S.C. Code Statutes regarding assault and battery.
Only fights authorized by the SC State Athletic Commission, a division of SC Labor Licensing Regulation, are immune from application of the SC Codes punishing assault and battery.
