David Bowersox, a partner with Hoffman, Comfort, Offutt, Scott, & Halstad in Westminster, recently commented on the issues raised in a case involving the owner of a local farm chasing trespassers off of his property. According to Bowersox, when it comes to property law and private property rights it is difficult to point to a definite bright line standard of what’s a reasonable action to stop trespassing in all cases. While Maryland law states you cannot use lethal force merely to stop a trespasser on your property, Bowersox says the appropriate response depends on the circumstances. To learn more about Maryland’s law on trespassing, please read this article posted by the Baltimore Sun.
