Court Orders Portion Of Roof Removed Due To Trespass

first_imgCourt Orders Portion Of Roof Removed Due To Trespass by Jennifer Nelson of Indiana LawyerThe Indiana Court of Appeals affirmed a jury verdict in a trespass and negligence lawsuit brought in a dispute over water draining from a housing development into neighboring property. In doing so, the judges ordered part of a roof to come down due to trespass.Liter’s of Indiana purchased property next to that owned by Earl Bennett and his half-brother Daniel Bodine, where Bennett lived with his wife. The roof of Bennett’s home extended over his property line by two feet into the property owned by Liter’s, which it was developing in a residential neighborhood. Liter’s erected a “spite fence” made of chain link to mark its property and also constructed a basin on its property to collect water for drainage.Liter’s sued Bennett and Bodine seeking to enjoin and recover damages for continuing trespass on its property; the defendants counterclaimed, alleging nuisance since Liter’s had erected the spite fence. They also alleged that the company had negligently designed its subdivision and that the post-development surface water runoff from the property would flood the defendants’ property.A jury ruled in favor of Liter’s on its trespass claim, but awarded no damages. It found for the brothers on their nuisance claim, but also awarded no damages. The jury ruled in favor of the brothers on their negligence claim, awarded more than $51,000 to each brother.“[U]nder the common enemy doctrine, it is not unlawful for a landowner to accelerate or increase the flow of surface water by limiting or eliminating ground absorption or changing the grade of the land, even if it causes water to stand in unusual quantities on the adjacent land or to pass into or over the adjacent land in greater quantities or in other directions than the water did before. In order to impose liability for surface water discharge, it must be collected on the Liter’s Property and cast off in concentrated volumes onto the Appellees’ Property. More importantly, the distinction lies in the character of the flow as it enters the adjoining property,” Judge Patricia Riley wrote in Liter’s of Indiana, Inc. v. Earl E. Bennett and Daniel L. Bodine, 39A05-1408-PL-401.“Admittedly, there was a lot of conflicting evidence offered by both parties. Some witnesses testified in a manner favorable to Liter’s and others favorable to the Appellees. However, as the reviewing court, we respect the jury’s exclusive province to weigh conflicting evidence.From the evidence of the case — though not free from conflict — the jury reasonably determined that the construction of Liter’s undersized basin led to the casting off of surface water in concentrated volumes onto the Appellees’ Property. In this regard, we find that the common enemy doctrine does not preclude the Appellees’ claim of negligence against Liter’s, and we affirm the trial court.”The judges remanded to the trial court with instructions for the issuance of a permanent injunction requiring the brothers to remove the unpermitted portion of Bennett’s roof that extends over Liter’s property. The continued existence of the roof extending to the neighboring property is a continuing trespass, the court held.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Harvard launches M.E. degree in computational science and engineering

first_img Read Full Story Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) is launching a master of engineering program in computational science and engineering (CSE) and is now accepting applications for fall 2014 admission.The master of engineering (M.E.) in CSE provides rigorous training in applied mathematics and computing skills. Students will develop and execute a computational approach to a large-scale scientific challenge as part of a second-year thesis project.Like graduates of Harvard’s one-year master of science (S.M.) program in CSE, launched last year, students who complete the M.E. program will be able to model complex systems; evaluate and implement efficient computational solutions; collaborate to design robust software; and analyze complex data sets, among other objectives defined by an advisory board comprising industry experts, national lab leaders, and Harvard faculty.The additional year of research experience gained in the two-year M.E. degree allows students to build greater research and technical skills, apply computation to a domain of interest, and complete a substantial project with a research mentor. All of these skills are in high demand in industry.The coursework and research are complemented by activities sponsored by SEAS’ Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), including a biweekly seminar series featuring speakers from academia and industry.last_img read more
