Barbara Jones owns a lakefront parcel of property that does not have direct access to a public right of way. The only way to reach her property by land is to cross her neighbor’s property. Her neighbor does not like this and claims that Barbara may not use his property to reach her land. A ferry service is established across the lake that provides Barbara access to her property without crossing the neighbor’s land.
Barbara approaches your firm with this issue. Your attorney asks you to research appropriate case laws and statutes in your state and prepare a legal argument supporting Barbara’s right to cross the property, applying rules concerning easements.
Prepare the argument in no more than 1000 words.
