The couple now resides on St. Simons Island. Early in their marriage, Mrs. Lightner taught preschool. They have one son, Andrew James Lightner, a daughter-in-law Kathy and two grandsons, Drew and Gavin, all of Seaford, Va. For their 50th anniversary celebration, Mr. Lightner has planned a surprise trip for his wife.
Called the “Get Acquainted Walk,” the tour was scheduled as an opportunity to foster stronger ties between the campus and the city. Casey and the college’s senior vice presidents – Provost and Dean of the Faculty Thomas Falkner, Vice President of Administration and Finance Ethan Seidel, Vice President of Institutional Advancement Richard Kief, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Dean of Admissions Florence Hines, and Dean and Vice President of Student Affairs Beth Gerl. Also from McDaniel: Robyn Allers, community liaison, and college trustees Dolly Snyder, Carolyn Scott and James Lightner – visited nearly 20 businesses and homes during the tour.
This case involves a dispute over an easement that James Lightner (Lightner) and Scott Bondurant (Bondurant) have over land owned by Dean Wilson (Wilson) and Deborah Wilson (together the Wilsons). The Wilsons appeal a judgment that, among other things, grants declaratory relief sought by Lightner and Bondurant and denies declaratory relief sought by the Wilsons regarding the scope and permissible uses of the easement. The Wilsons contend the court erred by: (1) incorrectly construing the easement based on the language of the grant deed and extrinsic evidence; (2) excluding evidence showing Lightner's intended future development of his property and use of the easement would overburden the easement and the Wilsons' property; and (3) retaining jurisdiction to determine whether future uses, improvements, or modifications of the easement constitute a surcharge to the servient tenement. The Wilsons also appeal a postjudgment order awarding Lightner $341,295.00 as costs incurred in proving matters not admitted in responses to requests for admission. (Code of Civ. Proc. § 2033.420.) We affirm the judgment and reverse the postjudgment order.
