In Crystal Ridge Homeowners Assn v. City of Bothell, 89533-3 (Wash. February 12, 2015), the Washington State Supreme Court held that Snohomish County and its successor the City of Bothell assumed responsibility for maintaining drainage pipes based on a recorded plat that provided drainage easements where the pipes were located were reserved for and granted to Snohomish County. The City of Bothell lost at the trial court, and the Court of Appeals. And now the Supreme Court. Now on to The Hague.
A reminder of how important it is to read plat maps….
