Betts v. Reed

In Betts v. Reed, 165 S.W.3d 862 (Tex. App.--Texarkana 2005, no pet.), a landowner closed a road that had been used by the public since at least the 1920s. Id. at 866. The court determined that if the obscurity shrouding the origin of the road also shrouds the identity and intent of the original owner or owners, then the obscurity also shrouds any assessment of any previous owner's competency. Id. at 870 n.4.
