William M. Slaughter and Jonathan D. Marshall Obtain Verdict for Defendants and Cross-Complainants in Easement Dispute

Following a bench trial in the Ventura County Superior Court, Slaughter, Reagan & Cole attorneys William M. Slaughter and Jonathan D. Marshall obtained a judgment on behalf of their clients in a contentious easement dispute between neighbors in Camarillo, California. The case involves an attempt by the firm’s clients to construct a modern driveway on land that included part of Plaintiffs/Cross-Defendants’ property that was subject to an easement in favor of the firm’s clients. Defendants/Cross-Complainants’ easement rights were for “road and utility” purposes. Following thorough argument and extensive briefing, Judge Kent Kellegrew issued a resounding decision in favor of Slaughter, Reagan & Cole’s clients, upholding the rights of easement owners to construct improvements that are within the scope and purpose of the original easement grant, and awarding costs to Defendants/Cross-Complainants.
