Parol Evidence VII



Parol Evidence VII – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Hoskins Heirs and Lewis v. Wells, Kentucky Supreme Court, 2018. The most important people in any boundary dispute are the parties to the case—the landowners. In many boundary dispute cases it is the testimony of the landowners that determines the outcome. This is the evidence that is often ignored by the retracing surveyor. In this case evidence provided by the landowners wasn’t necessarily ignored by the surveyors, it was how that evidence was used that became a determining factor. There is a fine line between listening to what you client has to say about the boundary lines and slipping into the role of advocate. Did our surveyor cross that line? This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 14 pages. This 16-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
