Carrollsburg v. Anderson

District of Columbia Court of Appeals

791 A.2d 54 (2002)

Facts

For decades, neighbors (plaintiffs) of the Carrollsburg condominium enjoyed an easement to park for free in the condominium garage. By long custom, the neighbors entered and exited the garage through the condominium’s interior. After 30 years, the condominium association (defendant) voted to charge the neighbors a garage-maintenance fee. When the neighbors refused to pay the fee, the association cut off the neighbors’ interior garage access and made them enter and exit the garage by an exterior ramp, thereby effectively changing the easement’s location. Eric Anderson (plaintiff) and other neighbors sued. The trial court enjoined the association from charging the neighbors for parking privileges and ordered the association to restore their interior access to the garage. The association appealed to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.
