Henley V Continental Cablevision Of St. Louis County, Inc.

692 S.W.2d 825 (Mo.Ct.App. 1985)

Facts

Henly (P) as trustee of the University Park subdivision filed an action for injunctive relief against D for putting its cable wires and equipment onto easements granted to the telephone and power companies in 1922. D claims it had a right as it exercised a license granted by both utility companies. P also sought $300,000 in damages and the reasonable value of the use of P's property based on quantum meruit. The issue was whether the easements in gross were exclusive.
