Marvin M. Brandt Revocable Trust v. US, 12-1173

In an action in which the government sought to quiet title to a right of way through defendant-landowner's property that had been granted pursuant to the General Railroad Right-of-Way Act of 1875, but had been abandoned by the railroad, summary judgment for the government is reversed and remanded, where the right of way was an easement that was terminated by the railroad's abandonment, leaving defendant-landowner's land unburdened.
