Property Dispute - Louise J. Piernas v. Charlene Campiso

Mr. Quinlivan obtained a dismissal on motion for summary judgment for a client who was in danger of losing thirty feet of property to her plaintiff neighbor. When a fence along their shared property line was destroyed in 2007, the previous owner of the client’s property erected a barbed wire fence temporarily to keep horses on the property from roaming. Because the temporary fence was erected between twenty-one to thirty feet to the north of where the old fence was located, the plaintiff alleged that the unfenced portion of the land bordering her property became her property. After successfully arguing for dismissal, the plaintiff appealed the Chancellor’s dismissal Mr. Quinlivan successfully argued both the merits and procedural aspects of the case. The Chancellor’s dismissal of the suit was affirmed by the Court of Appeals for the State of Mississippi. Louise J. Piernas v. Charlene Campiso, 2012 WL 317 4072.
