Duties & Responsibilities I – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Fallin v. Pesnell, Louisiana Court of Appeals 1996, involving the duties and responsibilities of the land surveyor with regard to property boundaries while performing a retracement survey. One surveyor went to the field and spent 110 hours finding and evaluating the evidence to retrace the disputed boundary. The other surveyor sat in his office playing with his computer while his field crew spent 10 hours gathering some GPS point data. The resulting surveys indicated a 6.06 acre overlap, sending the landowners to court. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 7 pages.
