The Supreme Court, Suffolk County has granted summary judgment to quiet title to a plaintiff’s property on Georgica Pond, in Wainscott, where a neighbor had erected encroachments and cleared vegetation, in MKG Georgica LLC v. Popcorn, Index No. 2014-3195.  The defendant/neighbor counterclaimed for “adverse possession” of the disputed area, but the Court held that the neighbor failed to establish entitlement to “tack on” to the alleged adverse possession by the prior owner of the neighboring property.
