Pincushion Corner I – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Steele v. Callahan, Indiana Court of Appeals 2012. In 2008, landowner hires a surveyor to survey his property and establish the four corners. The landowners then built a fence as a result of the survey. During construction the neighbor to the south begins to question the fence location and hires the same surveyor to survey second landowner’s property. Not realizing that he had just been there 18 months earlier, the survey set another monument at one of the common corners “six to seven inches” away from where he had first established the corner in 2008. Are there any repercussions for setting this pincushion corner. Read the case and find out. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 10 pages. This 12-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
