Boundary Establishment VIII



Boundary Establishment VIII – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief, Rippey v. Harrison, Washington Supreme Court 1911, is an older boundary dispute case but a reminder that boundary dispute cases are timeless, because that area of the law never changes. There are good reasons for this. Boundary law is essentially court-made law and the courts are loath to break any new ground in this area as a public policy issue. Stability in titles to land and the location of that property on the ground is the goal. Land surveyors would do well to better understand these underlying public policy issues. This case is a reminder of the basic principles of boundary law and evidence evaluation. This is a 2-Page Letter, covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 4 pages with our added commentary. This 6-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
