Ghostbusted. Haunted house not an excuse to get out of a contract in Norway.
We don’t believe in ghosts, buster: Norway court – The Local.
A court in eastern Norway has found no evidence to support a home buyer’s claim that his new house was a local hotspot for ghosts and ghouls.
On learning from locals that the house was reputed to be haunted, the buyer asked for a cancellation of the contract he had just signed and refused to cough up the amount he was bound to pay after having his bid accepted.

Well, yay! We covered this story in January and wondered if the prospective buyer was just looking for a way out.
The court noted that the case ought never to have been considered “since ghosts are not widely accepted to exist at all”. This whole thing sounded like an excuse to renege on the deal. They picked the wrong country. Cool. No supernatural pleas accepted!
