The appellate court stated that where it’s necessary, the court may order that only one witness or a few witnesses may be called to testify.
The court further found that the trail court was wrong in rejecting other appellants to give evidence.
Further the court found that boundary positions publically agreed to and observed by neighbors over long periods of time by neighbors, will be binding even when found later to be inaccurate.
The appellants were able to prove trespass by the respondent.
The court, therefore declared that the land belonged to the appellants and that the stream was the natural boundary between their land and that of the respondents.
The appeal was therefore allowed.
