    If she knew and complained to the town that the limbs were dangerous, why did she park her car under them?

      Here is the whole story. This IJ story is a poor account of what actually happened.

        Yes, the whole story sheds a much different light on the situation. Driving down the road and a limb big enough to penetrate your vehicle hits your kid!!! Is IJ inciting negative reactions? They left out the most important details.

      No where in the IJ article does it say she was PARKED under trees. That was your interruption of the article.

    I know absolutely nothing about this lawsuit or the facts surrounding it, but it immediately occurs to me that perhaps the homeowners had a very short driveway and street parking was not available, so they had no option but to park – on their own property – under unsafe limbs, which might be why they were complaining to the city and utility, in the first place??

      If the tree is on your property, it is the responsibility of the owner of the property to take care of it.

        A tree does not have to be on your property, to overhang your property. Which is an irrelevancy, as more information on this incident was uncovered.
