At 10:00 the COA will hear the case of John Girani v. John Taylor Lovern.
The parties are next door neighbors in a Florence subdivision. Previous owners of the properties had built a boat ramp between the properties to a lake. Everyone paid a share of the costs to build the boat ramp retaining walls in exchange for being able to use the boat ramp. The great majority of the boat ramp is on Lovorn’s property, with a sliver of the ramp being situated on Girani’s property. When Lovern brought the property on one side, he barred Girani from using the ramp. Girani sued asking the court to find an easement or license. The court declined to do so and Girani appealed.
