In an action to enforce a lien for taxes on real property, the defendants counterclaimed, asking for a declaratory judgment as to whether a sale of real property for nonpayment of taxes extinguishes an easement with which the property is burdened. The easement was appurtenant to an adjoining parcel of land. Held, an easement appurtenant is not extinguished by sale of the servient tenement for nonpayment of taxes. District of Columbia v. Capital Mortgage & Title Co., Inc., (D.C. Cir. 1949) 84 F. Supp. 788.
