Court considers Montana access case

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is reviewing a ruling that established a prescriptive easement across the Wonder Ranch in the Madison Mountain Range southeast of Ennis. The Court has been asked to overturn a District Court decision that a prescriptive easement had been created by years of public use accessing public lands beyond the ranch.

Overturning the ruling could have a significant impact on prescriptive easements elsewhere in Montana.
