SILLERY BAY IMPROVEMENT ASSOC. INC. et al. v. JOHN F. McGAHAGAN III et al.

This appeal arises from an action by John and Diane McGahagan to quiet title to several strips of land in the waterfront community of Sillery Bay in Pasadena, Maryland. The Sillery Bay Improvement Association (“SBIA”) contests the determination of the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County as to the rights in two of those strips of land. The issues presented are rephrased as follows:

(1) Did the trial court err by finding that the McGahagans acquired title by adverse possession to a platted road that runs through a field of lots that they own?

(2) Did the trial court err by finding the right of use of the 25-foot Gravel Road was limited to marina access for those validly using the marina?

(3) Did the trial court err in finding that Sillery Bay residents had not acquired a prescriptive easement for use of the 25-foot Gravel Road?

(4) Did the trial court err in concluding that the deed from the estate of Frank Cuccia to the McGahagans was valid?
