Vegan woman sued neighbors for barbecuing meat in their backyard
Noisy neighbors are never pleasant.
Cilla Carden has noisy neighbors, which is why she can tell you all about them. In fact, she dragged them to Australia’s Supreme Court because she found them to be so annoying.
The massage therapist from Perth, Australia sued her neighbors in court because she claimed that she was unable to utilize her backyard since they were constantly using their BBQ and playing basketball.
“It’s been devastating, it’s been turmoil, it’s been unrest, I haven’t been able to sleep,” Carden explained.
Carden, a vegan, has been whining for months about how her neighbor’s BBQ and smoking bothers her. She has also commented on the children playing basketball.
“They’ve put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish. I can’t enjoy my backyard, I can’t go out there.”
It became so problematic that she sued her neighbors. She attempted to appeal to the Supreme Court after having her claims rejected, but her application was also denied.
“It’s deliberate, that’s what I told the courts, it’s deliberate,” Carden said.
However, her neighbor thinks they have found a workable solution. When 9News allegedly went to the defendant’s backyard, they were informed that the youngsters had been told to stop playing basketball and that the barbeque had been taken out.
A Facebook event for a neighborhood BBQ was recently formed to let Carden know she couldn’t “destroy a good old Aussie tradition.” after news of the unique court case made headlines.
However, following the event, which attracted 24,000 attendees, police issued a warning and Carden’s attorney threatened legal action. The picnic was postponed.
Carden’s attorney argues that she has “no issue to individuals eating meat and no objection to people having barbecues,” despite the fact that her behavior and complaints have led many to believe otherwise.
