Hinrichs v. Melton

Cal.App. 2nd Dist. (B267505)  5/3/17

The court affirmed the trial court's judgment providing access to plaintiff's landlocked parcel of property, holding that a court may grant an equitable easement without there being a preexisting use by the landowner seeking the easement and that an easement by necessity cannot be extinguished by adverse possession as long as the necessity exists.
