Doctrine of Monuments III



Doctrine of Monuments III – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Duane v. Saltaformaggio, Mississippi Supreme Court 1984. The question asked by this case is do after-erected monuments in a subdivision hold when they are in conflict with the subdivision plat? Framed another way, can an original subdividing surveyor blunder or are the monuments placed by the original surveyor sacrosanct? As with last month’s case, the outcome depends, to a certain extent, on the chronology of events. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 7 pages with two aerial overlays. This 11-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.

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