Judge Sides with Costner


Actor Kevin Costner — a defendant in a lawsuit filed by a neighbor in Carpinteria who alleges that trees on Costner’s property block views from his own property — received a favorable decision from Judge Thomas Anderle Tuesday morning, who said that just because the neighbor’s view was blocked doesn’t mean it was done to annoy him. Potted plants abut a fence separating the two properties. There are still several facts at issue, however, as the two sides head toward a trial.
