Apportionment Rule III



Apportionment Rule III – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is State of California v. Thompson, California Court of Appeals 1971. This is apportionment in the Public Land Surveying System (PLSS) context. The principles in the PLSS context are basically the same as in the lot and block scenario. A corner is deemed lost and is then re-established by proportionate measurements in an attempt to equitably distribute excess and deficiencies found during the modern survey when compared to the subdivision (GLO/BLM) plat. Is apportionment an appropriate remedy? When is it an appropriate remedy? Are surveyors too quick to apply apportionment when other evidence points to another remedy? This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 9 pages. This 11-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
