Woodrick v. Wood
Ohio Court of Appeals
1994 WL 236287 (1994)
George Wood, deceased, left his real property (including Lots 105 and 106) to his wife, Catherine (defendant), as a life estate, with the property going to his children, Patricia Woodrich (plaintiff) and Sheridan Wood, upon Catherine’s death. A barn sat on the land straddling lots 105 and 106. Catherine and Sheridan wanted to have it torn down because of its old, deteriorating state, and because it was no longer suitable for its original purpose, to house horses. Patricia, owner of a future interest in Lot 105, filed a suit seeking to enjoin them from razing the barn. The trial court refused to issue the injunction, but ordered that, if the barn were demolished, Catherine and Sheridan were to pay Patricia $3,200 to compensate her for the loss of the structure. Patricia appealed.
