Joe dogs, Park emails about a recent court decision:
The hallway outside your apartment is not part of your home, even if it’s a secure building.
If you are attacked in that hallway, you are not allowed to defend yourself, you must retreat into your own apartment.
The court probably got the law right based on current statutes. Which explains why we need Stand Your Ground legislation more than ever.
that’s the big catch about winning cases in court – you have to start from a basis of good law.
And Minnesota has a long way to go.
