This is an appeal from a judgment granting a permanent injunction prohibiting Johnson from constructing a roadway across the
Morris' property. The issue is whether the trial court erred in its ruling that the alleged road was not a dedicated public
street. We affirm. The Morrises are the owners of Lot 81 in Spring Cove Addition No. 1 Subdivision in Lauderdale County, which they purchased
from the appellant, Johnson. Johnson owned and developed the property on which this subdivision is located, selling the lots
in reference to a plat he filed in the Probate Office of Lauderdale County. All the lots in this subdivision are waterfront
property, bordering Shoal Creek. See Appendix I which is a portion of the plat filed for record. Appendix II is a copy of
a plat which was included in the Morris' abstract supplied by Johnson. Note the discrepancies between the two.
