Nuisance is a very elastic concept that has been expanded by statutes and city ordinances to include, for example, abatement of sources of pollution, fines and closure actions against businesses and residential locations engaging in the sale of stolen property, prostitution, or drug dealing, or fining property owners for excessive calls from their location.
This comment provides a brief overview of the law of nuisance. Always consult an experienced attorney in a specific situation.
Public nuisances also called "common nuisances" interfere, broadly speaking, with public or collectively shared health, safety, peace, morals, or convenience. They exist as civil violations both at common law and by legislation and may or may not additionally constitute a crime.
Private nuisances are uniquely related to specific privately owned land uses and typically do not involve a traditional physical trespass for example, loud noises may be a nuisance.
Nuisances may be further subdivided into temporary, reoccurring for example, rain drainageand continuing. Nuisance law tends to focus on the relative rights of the parties and not specifically defined activities.
Hence, a nuisance may exist without precisely defined advance information that specific conduct is unlawful as criminal law requires. Courts tend to ignore a legal challenge to a declaration of nuisance when the challenge is based upon an assertion of unconstitutional due process because of a lack of advance notice or vagueness.
As urbanization increased and people "rubbed shoulders" in more physically confined settings, nuisance law expanded. For example, railroads were required to fence train yards to prevent trespassing children from being injured under an "attractive nuisance" doctrine.
The same idea is often currently applied to swimming pools. This approach balances the burden on a property owner to secure her or his premises against the grave potential harm to curious, immature children.
A countervailing contemporary argument attributes contributory negligence unreasonable conduct to parents who fail to supervise their children and prevent them from trespassing. If an ordinance requires that a swimming pool be fenced, then it is negligence per se automatic negligence by the property owner not to obey the ordinance.

Traditional rural farming operations were granted legal protection from nuisance claims under "Right to Farm" state legislation starting in the late s. Stopping a nuisance is called abatement. In the urban environment, there are city ordinances and codes that may be utilized such as those addressing trash and tall grass and weeds, dangerous buildings, and challenges to alcohol licensing.
A variety of business may be regulated by location ordinances.On teachers’ salaries, at least, the NCES data is data for WAGES only, not total compensation.
