Let’s look at a legal case that was filed against the Town of Cave Creek.
Freeman Vs. Town of Cave Creek
In 2012, Freeman, a resident of rural Cave Creek, learned that the Town of Cave Creek and Cahava Springs, a neighboring property, wanted to build a non-motorized recreational trail that would infringe on his property. He immediately filed a lawsuit seeking:
- A declaratory judgment on whether the defendant can use Freeman’s easement
- Judgment under common private nuisance law that prohibits the defendant from interfering with private property
- A permanent injunction prohibiting trespassing on the property and the construction of the trail.
Freeman received a temporary restraining order against the construction of the trail. In addition, the Town of Cave Creek was ordered to investigate further to determine if the trail qualified as an unreasonable interference with Freeman’s easement. After hearing the case in 2014, the court denied the permanent injunction to prevent the Town of Cave Creek and Cahava Springs from constructing the trail. Instead, the judge ordered them to adhere to nine minimum requirements to ensure the trail did not interfere with Freeman’s property.
