Evidence & Procedures I – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Merlino v. Eannotti, Pennsylvania 1955. This case is the proverbial “oldie but goodie.” Four surveyors are hired (two by Merlino and two by Eannotti) to survey the common boundary between their properties. We of course end up with four different results. The interesting part of this case is that the details of all four surveyor’s procedures for conducting their respective surveys are given, resulting is an interesting study in evidence and procedures. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 6 pages. This 8-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.
