Jamison v. Waldeck United Methodist Church

In Jamison v. Waldeck United Methodist Church, 191 W. Va. 288, 445 S.E.2d 229 (1994), the Court encountered a situation in which property owners brought suit claiming a prescriptive easement over a church's neighboring property, and the Court explained: "We agree with the Church that it is well established that if a property owner grants someone permission to use a piece of land for a particular purpose, a prescriptive easement cannot be created during the time the land is so used." 191 W. Va. at 292, 445 S.E.2d at 233.
