Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

This is a private condemnation action. Appellants own property in Decatur County that does not have access to a public road. Appellants currently access this property by crossing properties owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Appellees. Appellants have verbal permission from both TVA and the Appellees to enter their lands. When TVA would not grant the Appellants an easement to access their property unless the Appellees agreed to grant Appellants a private easement across their property, Appellants filed a private condemnation action against the Appellees pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated Section 54-14-101 et seq. The trial court found in favor of the Appellees. We affirm.
