86-year old scientist squares off with media mogul over Colorado trail.
Oprah Winfrey is not being neighborly.
The media mogul and billionaire is being sued by Charles D. Goodman, a retired physicist from Berkeley, over her plans to close off housing trails near a "megamansion" she's building in the Colorado Rockies, according to the Denver Post.
Goodman's lawsuit says that Winfrey is part of a "below-the-radar deal" that will see hiking trails near Telluride, which Goodman and his family have hiked "for nearly tree decades" shut down, the newspaper reported.
His attorney says that easements to access the trails were "erased" shortly before Winfrey closed on the $10.85 million property -- under pressure from her company, the newspaper reported.
Goodman spends his winters in Berkeley but lives in Mountain Village, near the Telluride ski resort, in warm weather.
Doesnt want papparazzi/stalkers/fans using the trails.
Who’s willing to bet one if 0’s biggest donors and upporters will prevail in the lawsuit even if they clearly don’t have legal standing to do so.

Tree Dog Night
He’s a physicist, can’t he just nuke that fat cow.
He hikes for 30 trees and that's as far as his family has gotten. They can't do 31 or more.
. not inconsistent with the owners use of the land
. must show that you have crossed or used that portion of the property for 18 years without permission
. use must be open and notorious, that is, the use must be obvious to anyone, including the owner
Oprah: If you purchased a property with such an easement, the easement must remain in place. This easement need not be on the deed running with the property. In situations where the easement description is not in writing, the court will decide how the property has been used in the past most often this will be a pathway or vehicle way.
Some New Englanders of French Canadian descent pronounce "three" that way (tree).
The Current FReepathon Pays For The Current Quarters Expenses?
Sounds like Oprah cut a land deal with Harry Reid.
the black community, the superior wealthy black community don’t ski and don’t hike neither.
He’s a racist, no doubt
Two libs fighting.. grab some popcorn. Winfrey is an overrated bag of hot air.
“for nearly tree decades”
Is that another term for Family Tree?
How do you erase an easement? Doesn’t it have to be recorded? Isn’t there supposed to be compensation?
Obese, obnoxious, racist elitist.
He needs to hire retired Supreme court justice Stevens to represent his cause. He knows how to screw over private ownership and conviscate property using eminent(sp?) domain.
Evidently, the professor simply doesn’t grasp the exclusive nature of American Royalty.
