    They have passed a law that says up to 40' over private property is their private space. Other than that, just the normal guidelines.

    Yes they did. They vetoed the more recent 350' but the other is still in effect. I'm not doing your home work for you. I assume you are adults.

    The only official court ruling regarding a lower boundary of private airspace was in 1946, US vs Causby.

    In this case the government was flying military aircrafts 83 ft above ground level over a farmer's property. The farmer won the court case.

    United States v. Causby 328 U.S. 256 (1946)

    Either way, no laws were put into place that clearly define where the line is drawn.

    There, I did your homework for you.

    Until @Othan1 can produce evidence of his mysterious 40ft law, let's assume it doesn't exist. What we do know exists is the new law to prevent people invading privacy with drones. Simply states if you're intent is to peep, you busted!

    Other than that, all the usual stuff applies. Stay away from any and all emergency activities. Avoid crowds. Don't disturb the neighbors. Yadda. Yadda. Yadda.

    Searched and searched. Found nothing even close to this. Gina have to say it's BS until you can source in some way.

    The only law Brown approved was AB 856.
