She successfully sued another neighbor for $500 4 or 5 years ago for a similar incident and did not replace the disputed section of fence.
There is some discoloration on the post, but it is not significant, and cannot be seen from more that 10 ft.
the post is a 2.5" in vinyl post that is very close to a cedar fence that I am responsible for maintaining.
She recently also stained her section of the wooden fence and got stain on the back side of the vinyl post.
She wouldn't tell us what color stain they used so we had to guess and we ended up with a lighter color.
The vinyl fence is at least four years old and has discoloration in other areas. She placed a note in our mail box with a quote for $200, and asked us to "remit" the amount. She spelled our name wrong and did not use a stamp or the mail service.
We expect she will take the case to small claims court as she did in the past.
