My home is no longer private

According to the Minnesota Court of Appeals, A08-1754, State of Minnesota vs. James Jay Gradishar, my home is now a public place.
For purposes of section 624.7142, we conclude that “public place” shall be defined as: generally an indoor or outdoor area, whether privately or publicly owned, to which the public have access by right or by invitation, expressed or implied, whether by payment of money or not.
If anybody has ever been invited to my house, or accompanied a guest to my house, or accessed the yard I don't fence or booby-trap, I live on public land, for the "purposes of section 624.7142".

Jackass judges.

I wonder if a "Private Property" or "No Trespass" sign(s) would make any difference? This is not good.
