Cottonwood Duplexes v. Barlow (Cal. Ct. App. - Nov. 13, 2012)

Oooh!  An opinion with plat maps!  Exciting.

We call this the "hold out" problem in academia.  "Rent seeking."  You don't need a particular property right (here, an easement), but someone else does.  So you seek to charge an arm and a leg.

Which, right or wrong, you're entitled to do.
