Land Court – Adverse Possession Claim

A commercial client barred a neighbor from renting parking spaces on its property.  The neighbor alleged ownership due to “adverse possession” claiming she had maintained sole control over the parking area in question for a period of 20 years.  The case was tried before the Land Court.  Due to careful preparation and detailed discovery, it was shown that the plaintiff could not have exercised control over the client’s parking area and a verdict for the client was issued.
