Boundary Establishment IX – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief, Ruch v. Williams, Pennsylvania Superior Court, 2015, is a case that studies the boundary location Doctrine of Consentable Boundary Lines. Perhaps unique to Pennsylvania law, the Doctrine of Consentable Boundary Lines has its roots in adverse possession theory but unlike adverse possession, it is a merely a location doctrine and thus, does not affect to title. It helps to settle the question of location. The Doctrine has similarities to acquiescence, with hints of repose, estoppel, practical location and boundary by agreement. This case also deals with some very important aspects of expert witness testimony as well. This is a 2-Page Letter, covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 12 pages with our added commentary. This 14-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
