Preserving Land in Dispute

The doctrine of adverse possession allows, in some limited circumstances, for someone to acquire real property that belongs to another. In one recent dispute, Joshua Kimerling and Troy Lipp, of Cuddy & Feder’s litigation team, succeeded in obtaining a temporary restraining order from the Westchester County Supreme Court on behalf of their clients who were seeking to acquire title to a disputed parcel through adverse possession. As a result of their efforts, the disputed parcel was preserved from potential blasting and excavation activities which would have ruined the piece of land.
