Frederick v. Consolidated Waste Servs., Inc.

“Owners of landlocked property brought action against adjacent property owner for trespassing and cutting and carrying of timber. Adjacent property owner counterclaimed seeking declaration that no easement existed over its land and order to discharge notice of intent to prevent extinguishment of easement. The Superior Court, Somerset County, Beaulieu, J., held that adjacent property was not subject to easement benefitting landlocked property. Appeal was taken. The Supreme Judicial Court, Clifford, J., held that owners of landlocked property did not have an easement, either by strict necessity or quasi-easement.
