The case-in-chief is McGhee v. Young, Florida Court of Appeals 1992. This case is best summarized by the Florida Court of Appeals. “Having determined that the placement of the monuments in the ground differed from the metes and bounds descriptions contained in the deeds and depicted in the minor plat of Rustic Hills, the question became which should control, the monuments, or the descriptions as contained in the deeds and subsequently recorded in the plat?” In this case, whether the monuments hold or not, depends, to a certain extent, on the chronology of events. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 6 pages with 6 attachments that include the subdivision plat and deeds. This 14-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
