LeBlanc v. Scurto
Louisiana Court of Appeal
173 So. 2d 322 (1965)
Santa Scurto LeBlanc (plaintiff) and Sam Scurto (defendant) were a brother and sister who each owned one-third of a piece of commercial property. The remaining one-third of the property was owned by another Scurto relative. The property was developed with store buildings and included an alley running behind the stores. The alley extended past the co-owned property to property that belonged to LeBlanc’s husband. The alley was used for passage by the co-owners and also by the lessee of LeBlanc’s husband’s property. After ill will developed between LeBlanc and Scurto, Scurto parked his car at the end of the alley to block LeBlanc’s access to it. LeBlanc filed suit, seeking an injunction preventing Scurto from blocking the alley or interfering with her right to use the alley. The trial court granted the injunction, and Scurto appealed.
