Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Phillip G. Hollis, Camden Tennessee, for the appellants, Brent Douglas and Jennifer Douglas.

Attorneys 2:

Douglas Thompson Bates, III, Centerville, Tennessee, for the appellees, Buddy J. Webb and Shelby E. Webb.

Judge(s): BENNETT

Landowners, whose properties abut a gravel road that crosses over the land of another, claim the right to use that road for ingress and egress. The trial court found the gravel road was formerly a public road, but that the road ceased being a public road at some point. Once the road ceased being a public road, the trial court found the landowners whose land abutted the road had a permanent easement and right to use the road for ingress and egress purposes. The landowners over whose property the road crosses appealed. We affirm the trial court’s judgment.
