I read the line "Quigley offered another means to introduce texts. “I have witnessed and been involved in depositions where someone asks someone else to take a cellphone out and read a series of messages,” he said. “What it did was ultimately preserve the fact that there were these communications.” That is not true.

The verdict was for S1.88 per foot per year, which means for the average-sized parcel of 1,180 feet, a recovery of $2,218 per year or $22,184 for the ten years of trespass that was at issue. More than anything personal to me, this was a victory for the protection of individual property rights.
