An appeals court has ruled a lawsuit against the city of Charlottesville and the Rivanna Trail Foundation can move forward.

Shirley Presley is suing the foundation for building part of the Rivanna Trail on her property.

The Charlottesville resident says she never gave anyone permission to use her land.

Presley put up barbed wire to keep runners out.

The lawsuit was dismissed in a lower court last year.
