A Jersey County couple has filed suit against Heneghan and Associates, claiming one of the company's employees surveyed their land incorrectly.
 
Joseph E. and Janice C. Desherlia found out their tract was not surveyed as shown when Jersey County Circuit Court determined on Oct. 18, 2007, the Desherlia's boundary lines were smaller and different in shape than originally shown in the Heneghan survey, according to a complaint filed Dec. 2 in Madison County Circuit Court.
