Mund v. English
Citation:684 P.2d 1248
The Munds (plaintiffs) and English (defendant) purchased adjoining one-acre parcels of land. A water well was drilled on English’s property. Pipes and other equipment were installed so that both the Munds and English could use water from the well. Less than a year after the installation, the Munds and English fought over their rights to the well and to the water. The Munds alleged that they had a permanent and irrevocable interest in the well. English, on the other hand, claimed that the Munds rights were not permanent. The Munds brought suit against English and trial court found for the latter. The Munds appealed.
