You are correct that the second example has yet to be fully litigated.
Regardless, you now have at least one example of a burglary victim who has had to pay for protecting his property and thus you can no longer say that every purported story has turned out to be false.
EllisUnit did say "homeowners" and not "property owners," and business/property law is different than home laws.
The other part of it was that this wasn't some unintentional thing like "slipping and falling on a knife." The property owner was rigging a deadly trap to protect property. (I say deadly because we are a 110 volt standard county).
So the whole "slipping and falling on a knife" and this don't equate.
