Evidence and Procedures IV



Evidence & Procedures IV – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Cupp v. Heath, Tennessee 2011. This case could easily be characterized as a case involving the “well-reasoned” opinion of the surveyor or “best available evidence.” Nevertheless, “evidence and procedures” is a better characterization because this case also highlights the problems that arise when surveyors completely ignore boundary line evidence and throw out all procedure in favor of simply surveying what the client (or someone else) points out as the boundary. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 12 pages. This 14-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.
