Retracement III – 1.5 Contact Hours

The case-in-chief is Knerr v. Mauldin, California 2006. In this edition, retracement is studied in the lot and block scenario. A modern-day surveyor attempts to correct all of the surveying errors of the past, sending the affected landowners into litigation. The companion questions of what are “original footsteps” and who is an “original surveyor” are in play. This edition also includes the bonus case of State of California v. Thompson, California 1971, which is cited in the case-in-chief. The bonus case is for informational purposes only and is not tested. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 4 pages. This 15-Page document (including bonus case) 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.
