    Yeah, same in Georgia (though its still too easy to have the government effectively screw you out of your property rights. ): it's probably some unique Oklahoma statutory law that got put in as a political favor, and supersedes the common law 'easement' rights: Easement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Edit: I should have read Oberon's post before typing this.

Access easements are very common in the world of real estate, not strange at all. Were I the people this guy was blocking with his new purchase, I would go to court and submit evidence that the driveway had been in use for X amount of time, thus establishing a de facto access easement.

    If the ruling goes in the tenants' favor, the guy keeps title to his land, and they get to continue to drive on it. If he wants to stop them, his only legal option is to purchase the easement back from them. I would recommend they ask $80,000.
    That would be my (non-legal for purposes of the internet) advice.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    What a douchebag.
