You do not include a question with your post which makes it difficult to determine what, exactly, you are asking. However, if a court ruled that it is a private road, your remedy is an appeal. You cannot modify an existing court order without an appeal which generally, must occur within 60 days after the ruling is entered.l
Hello. I suggest that you confer privately with an attorney without delay. I note that you did not post a specific question.
