Permanent Trespass Law and Legal Definition

Permanent trespass is a trespass of a permanent nature, where the injury is continually renewed. Permanent trespasses occurs when trespasses of one and the same kind, are committed on several days, and are in their nature capable of renewal or continuation, and are actually renewed or continued from day to day, so that the particular injury, done on each particular day, cannot be distinguished from what was done on another day. For instance, where a man's cattle are habitually permitted to trespass and spoil and consume the herbage.
