JOE THE GRINDER, RIVA ROAD, LLC V. RIVA, LLC

Real property — Easement — Scope

This appeal arises out of a dispute between two neighboring property owners, Joe the Grinder, Riva Road, LLC (“Joe the Grinder”) and Riva, LLC (“Riva”), concerning the scope of an easement granting Riva passage across Joe the Grinder’s property  (the “Easement”). The parties agree that the Easement provides access from Riva’s property, across Joe the Grinder’s property, to an adjacent traffic light, which we will refer to as “To the Light Access.” The crux of the present dispute is whether the Easement also provides access the opposite way; i.e., from the same traffic light, across Joe the Grinder’s property, to Riva’s property, which we will refer to as “From the Light Access.”
