I've been avoiding Red Bank for years. They seem to think of traffic tickets as a source of revenue rather than a safety tool. I expect to see Barney Fife hiding behind a bush somewhere.
I think it’s a publicity stunt, but can’t imagine what the next shoe might be. The adverse possession law has to hold in this case, leaving the boundary right where it is.
According to the ExpertLaw website, adverse possession is shown by the fact(s) that “its possession is actual, open, notorious, exclusive, hostile, under cover of claim or right, and continuous and uninterrupted for the statutory period.”
Not sure what the statute of limitations might be, but since this pre-dates the Trail of Tears, whoever winds up with Ross’s Landing would promptly have to turn it over to the Cherokee Nation.
On the other hand…..
