Notes / Description: 

The parties own adjacent tracts of land. For some 20 years, the plaintiff would walk through part of Edward Robinson's (dec.) land without problems. The estate of Edward Robinson (dec.) was partitioning off his land and the defendant bought a tract and prevented the plaintiff access through it, creating an obstruction to a main road.
