Plettner v. Sullivan
Johnson, pp. 655-658
Facts: Plettner and Sullivan owned adjoining lands, and both tracts were granted to them by the Hatchery.
Issue: Did the Plettners acquire land west of the chickenhouses by adverse possession?† If not, did they acquire a prescriptive easement in the jointly used road?
Rule: The requirements for getting a prescriptive easement are a little lower than the requirements for adverse possession.
Conclusion: The Plettners get adverse possession of the ten-foot strip next to the road.† They donít get adverse possession of the road itself, but they do get a prescriptive easement to travel on the road.
