Contracts III



Contracts III – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief, Ex Parte Howell Engineering and Surveying, Alabama 2006, involves an employment contract and the issue of “moonlighting.” Damages in these types of cases can be substantial and, as this case clearly illustrates, can include punitive awards. This case also implicates the issue of the restraint on the lawful practice of a profession. Even though this issue is somewhat driven by state statute, every state has such statutes and the courts treatment of these issues makes them rather universal in application. 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 two cases covered.

OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
