Best Available Evidence IV
May 2011 Edition of The Lucas Letter – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Eisenbarth v. Horn, Washington 2009. We’ve already seen how important it is to appear credible to the trial court and much of the surveyor’s credibility comes from how comprehensive the survey was or was perceived to be by the court. This case explores not only the concept of best available evidence concept, but also how the gathering an evaluation of the best available evidence may be all that is needed to win the day in court. This is a Correspondence Course with a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 10 pages. This 12-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief. OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
