A county in Mississippi sends land surveyors to inspect for violation of county development ordinances. The two land owners fight back in court -- and win.

Appeals court reverses Vollor, blocks path of county surveyor

[01/31/08] --The Mississippi Court of Appeals has reversed the injunction issued in 2006 by Warren County Circuit Court that allowed county surveyors to inspect land off Mississippi 465 for violations of county development ordinances.

In a ruling issued Tuesday, which also says the county must pay all the legal expenses and costs for both parties, the state appellate court said Kenneth D. Blakeney, Rose C. Blakeney and Issaquena and Warren Counties Land Company were not served with proper notice before an injunction hearing on Oct. 2, 2006, before Circuit Judge Frank Vollor.
