More Nuttiness From San Francisco

A friend just put a house on the market in San Francisco and writes this:

In San Francisco, you must disclose to a potential buyer if a person has died in your house during the past three years. However, another law states that if someone has died of AIDS in your house you are forbidden to disclose this fact. Therefore, if indeed someone has died of AIDS in your house, you have to choose which law to break. Either way, a buyer can sue you!


  1. Is there any better place in the world to be a lawyer then San Francisco?

  2. Couldn't you simply disclose that someone died, but not disclose the cause of death? In fact, don't many people who die from AIDS actually die from pneumonia or other complicating factors?
