Snell v. Ruppert

In Snell v. Ruppert, 541 P.2d 1042 (Wyo. 1975), the Court discussed the development of the use of eminent domain to establish a private road leading from the land of an individual to the nearest highway when he has no means of ingress and egress in any other manner. The Court accepted the premise that "there is a public interest in giving access by individuals to the road and highway network of the state as a part and an extension thereof for economic reasons and the development of land as a resource for the common good, whether residential or otherwise." Id. 541 P.2d at 1046 fn.5
