To: Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Lots of mixed reactions on this thread. My initial reaction was “Good for him!”, but my amended reaction is “This ain’t over by a long shot, now that it’s hit the news.”

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the impetus for new (or amended) legislation about adverse possession in Texas and elsewhere.

But if anyone else is claiming ownership rights to the house they should offer Mr. Robinson some walking away money to avoid a protracted court battle. 10% to 15% of the appraised value should work nicely.

My thoughts went to the original intention and circumstances of the creation of this law. My guess is that during the depression or some other time, when people walked away and they was no legal method to acquire a property this was made. At that time they would want some one to live in it and fix it up?

Any one know history on this?
