Rudman Winchell Attorney Edmond Bearor Successfully Presents Case to Maine Supreme Court

By Rudman Winchell Attorney


Rudman Winchell attorney Edmond Bearor has successfully argued a case in front of the Maine Law Court. The case, LEWIS E. MATTESON et al. v.MALCOLM L. BATCHELDER, involves a dispute over fee ownership of less than one acre of land on a stream in Exeter and the location of a deeded right-of-way on property owned by Lewis E. Matteson and Betty J. Matteson.

Following a bench trial in the Superior Court the Mattesons appealed the decision regarding the right-of-way, and Malcolm Batchelder cross-appealed the decision regarding fee ownership of the disputed lot. In a decision written by Justice Warren Silver, The Law Court affirmed the court’s judgment as to the fee ownership issue, but vacated the judgment regarding the right-of-way and remand for further proceedings.

Attorney Bearor is the Managing Partner at Rudman Winchell. He was recently named the 2012 Best Lawyer of the Year for Land Use and Zoning Law.
