Patrick Marshall and Deborah Marshall (plaintiffs) owned land in Branford, Connecticut. The Marshalls sought to determine the boundary between their property and neighboring property owned by Joseph Soffer (defendant). The Marshalls sued to quiet title to the land based on the actual boundary line. Soffer claimed that, regardless of the boundary determination, he had acquired title to the disputed land by adverse possession. Soffer also argued the Marshalls’ deed was ambiguous, because a monument in the description had been lost. In addition, Soffer presented a 1967 map that had been created for Soffer, indicating that the property lines shown were as agreed to by Soffer and Huzar, who owned the property before the Marshalls. However, this map was not referenced in any deed. Finally, Soffer asserted that the doctrine of acquiescence in a boundary applied and was satisfied by Huzar. The trial court found that the Marshalls’ deed was not ambiguous, a 1967 map did not modify the deed’s description, and Soffer failed to prove adverse possession. The trial court ordered Soffer to remove a fence and other material in accordance with the deed’s description. Soffer appealed.
