INJUNCTION IS CONTINUED-.
Judgo Qunster Hands Down an Opinion
In Davis-Jirmyn Case.
Judgo Qunster yesterday handed
down an opinion in the injunction
oase of Leah Jones-Davis agaiust John
Jermyn and Contractor Conrad Senroe
der. A portion of it ie ae follows:
The evidence shows that the premises
included are part of a double buildnig aud
that tbe plaintiff has constructed and
erected extensions and additions to it;
and that since she wont into possession,
she had used an outhouse, situate on tho
easterly half of tho whole lot in connec
tion therewith fir. Jermyn Is engaged in
the erection of a hotel building which Is
desigued or planned eventually to cover
the whole lot. At present bis intention is
to completo tbe strvcture to the inside
line of the double building, of
which the plaintiff occupies the
westerly half, To do this it
will be necessary for him to tear dowu tho
easterly half of the building. The evi
dence shows that this can be dono without
injuring or destroying tbe westerly half or
tbe extensions or additions thereto. But
Iu excavatiug for the hotel bulKling Mr.
Jermyn encroached in tho rear and it also
became necessary for bim to remove the
outhouse which the plaintiff had UAed mid
which she claims tbe right to use. This
structure however was not on the prem
ises described in tbe lease that Is whs not
on the westerly half of the lot,
aud while tho plaintiff may have been
permitted to ue it, nor right to do so is
not clear. As the present plans of Mr.
Jermyn do not contemplate any encroach
ment upon or injury to the rights ot the
plaintiff, the injunction might t dis
solved, but as It will work him no harm
and will seen re nn observance of the rights
of tbe plalutiff, I think it best that It
should be couttuued.
Tbo rule la madu absolute and tbe in
junction heretofore grunted is continued
until otherwise ordered.
