Plaintiff Mike Turman, owner of Turman Lumber Company and Defendant Mary Ann Capp, a private landowner, are disputing the use of a 3-hundred foot road.

Turman's logging trucks use the road to reach a logging operation on the top of the mountain. Capp says the road is her private property and wants the vehicles to stop traveling on it. In court yesterday, Turman argued he has a right of way for the road. Witnesses testimony included property boundaries and other area landowners who use the road to reach their property. Capp's attorney argued the plaintiff did not prove continuous use as required by law for right of way. The defense puts on its case this morning.
