Case Summary

S-15-0236 George Poullos & Jody Poullos v. Pine Crest Homes, LLC (Appellant)

Douglas County, Hon. Timothy P. Burns

Equity: Adverse Possession

Attorneys: Jeffrey A Nix (Pansing Hogan Ernst & Bachman LLP) (Appellant) 'James T. Boler

Proceedings below: The Poulloses filed a complaint for injunctive relief and quiet title. The district court found for Plaintiffs on their claim of quiet title. Pine Crest appealed. Because the district court failed to address the Poulloses' request for injunctive relief, the Court of Appeals dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. The district court then rendered an order addressing both claims, and Pine Crest filed another Notice of Appeal.

Issues: 1) Whether the use of the disputed property was notorious; 2) Whether the legal description cited by the Poulloses was adequate for an adverse possession claim; 3) Whether public policy requires that the original borders of lots in platted subdivisions be maintained.
