Canadian National Railway v. Sprague

“Phineas Sprague, Sr. and Portland Yacht Services, Inc. (Sprague) appeal from a judgment entered in the Superior Court (Cumberland County, Alexander, J.), adopting a referee’s report in which the referee found that Sprague’s easement across Canadian National Railways’ (CNR) property had been abandoned and extinguished.

On appeal, Sprague argues that the referee premised its conclusions of law on several clearly erroneous findings of fact and that the Superior Court erred in refusing to reach the merits of some of Sprague’s objections to the referee’s report. We affirm the judgment.
