I don't see the connection of how your expenditure of $150,000 in an easement case relates directly or even indirectly to the OP's post.
The fact that you got twined for that kind of legal expense and you haven't won yet would indicate that you are in a far different situation.
I think that my original advice is still valid and should be given a chance.
No, easements don't suck. You wouldn't have access, electricity, gas, sewers without them. You need to do due diligence and discover them in advance.
