Stambovsky v. Ackley

  • “As a matter of law, the house is haunted.”
  • “Plaintiff hasn’t got a ghost of a chance.”
  • “I am, nevertheless, moved by the spirit of equity.”
  • “From the perspective of the a person in the position of the plaintiff … a very practical problem arises … : ‘Who you gonna’ call?’”
  • “It cannot be said [Defendant] has delivered the property vacant.”
  • “The prudent attorney will establish an escrow account lest the subject of the transaction come back to haunt him.”

How am I supposed to take this seriously?
