On remand, the trial court entered an order declaring adverse possessor the holder of fee simple to one parcel that purported owner had claimed title to. Purported owner appealed. Holding: The Supreme Court, Benham, J., held that evidence was sufficient to support finding that adverse possessor acquired prescriptive title to property by possession for over 20 years. Affirmed.
