When does “silence imply consent” for trespass to land?
there used to be a parking lot attendant that once watched a person getting out of his car and he was able to announce that "You're not allowed to park in that particular spot." But the attendant stayed silent. The parking lot owner's interests would have been served better by immediate oral notice to the driver since the car would have been removed faster. I happen to know of a case where a criminal charge of trespassing was dismissed because an employee of the company on whose property the defendant was said to have trespassed watched him for some time without ever telling him to leave. Might something similar apply to the situation described here, if the car's owner sued the towing company, saying the attendant's silence implied consent?"
