Doctrine of Monuments IV



Doctrine of Monuments IV – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Butler v. Coyle, Washington Court of Appeals 2012. This case involves a common grantor, a call for a road, and bearings and distances that do not agree. We have one surveyor who insists that the bearings and distances hold over the call for the road and another surveyor who holds the call for the road. The real fun in this case is Ms. Coyle representing herself and making her arguments as to why bearings and distances are superior to monuments. She is as stuck on math and measurements as many land surveyors are. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 11 pages. This 13-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.
