Webb Tract, LLC v. United States of America

Plaintiff's memorandum of law in support of it's motion for summary judgment

A case arising from the NIKE missile system that once circled the nation, but was dismantled in the 1960's. Here, the USA had dismantled the missile silos, but sought to enforce the donut shaped "safety easement" around the former missile site to prevent commercial development, while at the same time developing it's own former missile site with commercial buildings. A demand from the GSA for lot's of money in exchange for release of the easement precipitated this lawsuit.

At issue was federal law governing quiet title and abandonment actions against the government, and Maryland law governing abandonment of easements. The case resolved before Judge Titus was required to rule on the motion.
