    No. If the police were enforcing a valid order, there would be no liability. If he wants to see his girlfriend, he needs to get he order vacated. This can be done with his girlfriend's agreement. If she is not willing to so agree, he needs to stay away from her.

    Utilities are not always perfect in their billing practices, and mistakes can be made. When they are corrected, they sometimes result in a large unexpected bill to the customer. You should call the utility to see if they can give you an explanation of the mistake and double-check to be sure it is right now. Once you confirm that, ask if you can arrange a payment plan to pay off the amount due. Most utilities will work with you under these circumstances.

    You do not have to allow them to come onto your property to siphon the fuel, but you will likely be required to pay for the fuel if you do not allow them to remove it. Even though you did not order the fuel, if you receive it and can use it, you will be responsible to pay for it.

    William’s Answer

    No, you cannot avoid a zoning violation based on a claim of privacy or an unlawful search for something that is visible from off your property. That is the point of zoning--to protect others who can see your property.
