      History: P.A. 78-331 corrected misspelling, substituting "excepted" for "accepted"; P.A. 01-118 made technical changes for purposes of gender neutrality and added provisions re exception for easements or interests that are conservation restrictions and are held by a land trust or nonprofit organization.

      Subdiv. (1):

      Trial court properly concluded that pursuant to subdiv., the easement over plaintiff's property as of 1996 deed was limited to the fixed location of three existing conduits, which constituted partial exercise of the easement, and that because plaintiff failed to present sufficient evidence of damages resulting from partial encumbrance of the property, defendants were entitled to a directed verdict. 270 C. 487.
