RICHARD L. HOLLOW, TRUSTEE v. BEULAH BUTLER, ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. July 26, 2011)

Richard L. Hollow, Trustee ("Plaintiff") sued Beulah Butler with regard to a boundary line dispute. After a trial, the Trial Court entered its order finding and holding, inter alia, that the common boundary line between Plaintiff's real property and Ms. Butler's real property is as shown on a September 17, 2003 survey prepared by Plaintiff's surveyor, James Ogle, and that Ms. Butler had not proven adverse possession, laches, or gross laches. Ms. Butler appeals to this Court. We affirm.
