Trespass To Chattels

"Chattel" refers to items of personal property. A person commits trespass to chattel if he or she intentionally possesses someone else's property without their consent, even if only for a brief period of time. Courts require that some sort of actual harm results from the trespass to chattel in order for it to be actionable.
