In Wanda Roberts, et al. v. Anthony W. Henson , a 19-page opinion, Judges Barnes writes:
Wanda and Ray Roberts, along with seventeen of their neighbors (collectively “the Appellants”), appeal the trial court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Anthony Henson and the denial of their motion for summary judgment. We reverse and remand.In Luther T. Collins v. Metro Real Estate Services, LLC , a 20-page opinion, Judge Barnes writes:
The restated issue before us is whether the trial court correctly concluded as a matter of law that a structure built by Henson in the Appellants’ neighborhood did not violate the neighborhood’s restrictive covenants. * * *
We reverse the grant of summary judgment in Henson’s favor with respect to the covenant provisions regarding story height and two-car garages and remand for further proceedings with respect to those provisions. However, we agree that, as a matter of law, Henson’s structure is not a “barn” or “pole barn” that is prohibited by the covenants.

The trial court did not abuse its discretion by concluding an easement exists for Metro’s benefit over Collins’s property. We affirm.
