Altior Law attorney Steve McKenney recently obtained a favorable appellate ruling for his clients in a property line dispute: Slater v Cueny, unpublished opinion per curiam of the Michigan Court of Appeals dated Feb. 10, 2022 (Docket No. 355914). In that opinion, the Court of Appeals upheld the trial court’s order establishing a new property line between the parties based on the plaintiffs’ claim of acquiescence. The Court of Appeals also upheld the process through which the trial court determined the location of the line (appointing a special master who retained a surveyor to take the court’s judgment and translate it into a surveyed line).
The Slater decision is the second appellate victory that Steve obtained for his clients following trial on boundary line issues (and application of the doctrines of acquiescence, adverse possession, and prescriptive easement). See Allen v Cohen, unpublished opinion per curiam of the Court of Appeals dated Mar. 20, 2007 (Docket No. 266664).
