“This is a question about property rights,” says family’s lawyer

A Georgia family was kicked off their own plot of land and fined for living in an RV.
Polk County resident Tim Leslie bought a plot of land with his life savings after getting laid off due to the pandemic lockdowns, where he and his family lived in an RV as they developed a permanent home.
“Before I could go to court, they showed up at my property, the building inspector and the code enforcement officer, and told me that I had to be off my land or they were going to seize my vehicles and my assets,” Leslie told WSB-TV last month.
Institute for Justice lawyer Ari Bargil said Leslie’s case brings up questions about property rights and freedom.
