So, in dealing with the open and hostile requirement and the running of the statute of limitations in this case, the Plaintiffs were frightened to confront their relative, and instead chose to await his death before staking a claim to the farm.
Student A: Wouldn't waiting be justified in this case, perhaps tolling the S.O.L.?
Professor: Not necessarily, and in this case, the court decided not.
Student B (overtly gay): That's screwed up!
Professor: thank you for your candid opinion, Student B. Perhaps you would confront your own parents then in such a situation?
Student B: Oh, no...
Professor: no? why not?
Student B: Oh, they're just dirty, dirty people!
