II. Whether the District Court committed an error of law in determining the City of Devils Lake is entitled to an Irrevocable Permissive License.

IV. Whether the District Court erred as a matter of law by allowing the taxation of 50 percent of the costs and fees requested by the City of Devils Lake and abused its discretion by allowing the taxation of expert witness fees against Plaintiffs.
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
I. Whether the trial court properly dismissed this action because the Plaintiffs' claims were time barred since they were not commenced within the applicable statute of limitations period? II. Whether the trial court correctly granted the City an irrevocable permissive license over the Larger Parcel because the Drainage Project was requested by and benefited Plaintiffs? III. Whether the trial court properly exercised in discretion in assessing the City's costs and disbursements against the Plaintiffs? IV. Whether the trial court correctly decided res judicata did not apply when the claims in this case were not adjudicated in the prior action by stipulation of the parties?
