In 1979, William Doyle (defendant) gave his neighbor Donald Abbatiello a right-of-way across his land to construct a driveway. The deed provided that Abbatiello would construct and maintain the driveway, which he did not do. Doyle sold parts of the property over which the right-of-way passed to others, and Abbatiello’s property passed to the plaintiffs. Doyle then interfered with the plaintiffs’ ability to use the right-of-way. They brought suit to enjoin him from interfering. Doyle claimed that the right-of-way was a license held only by Abbatiello, and that if the right-of-way was an easement, it had been forfeited because no driveway had been constructed. The trial court entered summary judgment for the plaintiffs, and Doyle appealed.
