Evidence & Procedure V
November 2011 Edition of The Lucas Letter – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Jones v. Gresham, Mississippi Appeals 2007. Is the gather of the best available evidence, evaluating that evidence in light of the surrounding circumstances and following proper procedure important to the outcome of the survey, or is it simply good enough to perform a survey that is technically correct, regardless of outcome? Put another way, is it OK for a doctor to amputate the wrong leg as long as the operation was performed in a technically correct fashion, or are results important? This case explores that question in the land surveying context. 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.
