Clisham et al. v. Varano, Worcester Superior Court
RESULT: Defense Verdict on Claim of Prescriptive Easement
Our client’s neighbor sued to establish a prescriptive easement over a common driveway running across abutting properties. The neighbor claimed that its family’s use of the common driveway for more than twenty years entitled it to prevent our client from installing a fence along the property line. At a jury-waived trial, we successfully established that the neighbor’s use of our client’s property was at all times permissive, not adverse, defeating the prescriptive easement claim. We also successfully established that alternative means of egress to the neighboring property existed, defeating plaintiff’s alternative theory of easement by necessity.
