Toomey v. Riverside RV Resort, LLCAnnotate this Case
Larry Toomey blocked a culvert that had been installed to channel water away from the only road providing access to his property and to the property of his neighbor, Riverside RV Resort, LLC ("Riverside"). Toomey did this with the knowledge that the blockage might damage the road and Riverside's property. Riverside sued and obtained an injunction against Toomey, as well as a judgment awarding it compensatory damages, punitive damages, and attorney fees. Toomey appealed. After review, the Alabama Supreme Court affirmed judgment to the extent it enjoined Toomey from blocking the culvert and granted Riverside compensatory and punitive damages, but reversed to the extent it awarded attorney fees to Riverside.
