Cilla Carden, a vegan from Perth, was frustrated with her two neighbors cooking meat barbeque in their own backyards. This moved her to bring them to court!
According to Carden, she couldn’t enjoy her backyard walk anymore because she can smell the smoke coming from her neighbors’ barbeque. She even claimed that they deliberately allow their barbeque smoke to waft into her yard.
After her claims were rejected by a tribunal earlier this year on lack of evidence, she applied to the Supreme Court of Western Australia for right of appeal. It was also turned down in July.
Lawyer John Hammond said going to the Supreme Court was an “extreme option” — but it hadn’t stopped Ms Carden from further appealing the case.
She told Nine News she believed her neighbors were “absolutely deliberate” in allowing their smells to cross into her yard.
It’s absolutely okay to demand for your right to live your life in peace. But where do you draw the line so as not to deprive others their right to enjoy their own lives as well?
