Favorite Halloween Legal Cases
With Halloween coming up, I’ve been thinking–what are professors’ favorite Halloween-themed cases? My vote is Stambovsky v. Ackley, the famous NY “haunted house” case. See my post from a year ago on the case. Let me know what’s your favorite Halloween case.
UPDATE: A Canadian law professor passes along Nagy v. Manitoba Free Press, (1907) 39 S.C.R. 340 (S.C.C.), in which a newspaper disparaged a house by calling it haunted.
UPDATE 2: The “haunted house” went on the market in Fall 2011. See the listing.
