Friends Brittany and Reg bring their case before the court. On an amble through a cemetery after Christmas, Brittany found hundreds of potted Christmas trees left graveside. She saw that they weren't being cared for, and hoping to save them from the trash, took the trees and replanted them elsewhere. Her friend Reg says this is tantamount to grave-robbing since it was done without permission. He insists that Brittany was wrong to take the trees, no matter her intention. Who's right? Who's wrong?

I was really hoping that an alternate label would be supplied in the ruling to replace grave robber.

I don’t dispute the judge’s ruling, but I would like to voice my support for Brittany’s actions. People like her are scarce in the world, and I admire her conviction to do the right thing, even if she needed to rob a few graves in the process. Brittany, the world would be a better place if there were more people like you in it.

Location: London. The proper one.
This was an odd story all round. Reg sounds like John C Reilly, which only added to the fun.

Please tell this likable, energetic and creative young lady that she should not be planting trees unless she is sure that the species are native or at least non destructive to the local ecosystem. Before she evens asks permission for another round, research to confirm that planting them would not undermine the natural balance of the area.
