Estate of Seifert (Cal. Ct. App. - April 4, 2005)

This opinion is right out of a first-year property class. Including the (tangentially funny) decision by Justice Sims to call the 20-acre parcel at issue "Blackacre" even though that was obviously not its name. The case involves the requirements of adverse possession as applied to probate. It's a concise, six-page opinion that's definitely worth the quick read.
