Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
You'll need to file a lawsuit for nuisance.
I know that that is a short answer, but that is what you're have to do.
Best of luck to you,
Nothing is hopeless. Some things, however, are a great deal of work.
How long have you lived there?
You have at least two choices. (1) Hire an attorney if you can afford one. (2) Contact the media for help. (3) Try to put together a lawsuit on your own. (4) Move. (5) Live there. (6) Get your community to pass emergency rules temporarily banning the smoke while an expert studies the situation and makes recommendations.
I guess that was six choices. Maybe you can think of other ideas.
What you're going to choose will depend on your temperament and finances. Each choice (other than doing nothing) will require you to expend some type of resource - be it energy or money or both.
Write again if you have follow up questions. :)
You're welcome, and thank you for paying.
I live in a rural area and this time of year people start burning brush that fell during the winter. We are close to getting an all-out ban, which I support. I think it's a waste, when all that brush could be recycled.
Best of luck to you!
