This exposed her to the exciting work of Charcot’s clinic and other Frenchmen studying the neuropathology of poliomyelitis, and aroused her pathology and physiology interests.

The parties to this real property dispute own adjoining properties on the shore of Lake George in the Town of Bolton, Warren County, in an area known as "Jacobi Point." Historically, plaintiffs and their predecessors-in-title accessed their property via a deeded right-of-way over defendants' property.
In support of their motion, defendants point to the deposition testimony of plaintiff W. Park Allen, which described a history of cooperation and accommodation among the property owners on Jacobi Point dating back to a common grantor, Abraham Jacobi.
In the absence of any evidence that plaintiffs' use of defendants' property was hostile and under a claim of right, the prescriptive easement causes of action were properly dismissed.
