Construction Expert On WA Supreme Court Case

Real Estate, House, ResidentialThe eastern Skamania County, WA, home of Ford and Christina Huntington has been the subject of a legal dispute since 2005. The Skamania County residents learned the house was on neighbor’s property 8 years after it was built. Their neighbor, Noel Proctor, sued the Huntingtons to get them off his property (and to take their house with them.)

On Thursday, a 5-4 Washington Supreme Court sided with the Huntingtons. In doing so, the court upheld the opinions of a Skamania County judge and the Court of Appeals, which upheld the trial judge’s solution of making Proctor sell an acre of his land to the Huntingtons. A construction expert testified that it would cost the Huntingtons $300,000 to move their home. Another witness testified that a fair market value for one acre of Proctor’s land would be $25,000.
