Rights-of-Way II – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Peoples Natural Gas Co. Appeal, Pennsylvania Supreme Court 1960. What happens when a right-of-way taking is described in one location but actually used in another? In this case a right-of-way was condemned for a natural gas pipeline. The description of the condemned strip of land did not coincide with where the pipeline was actually installed. The landowner naturally wants to be paid for both strips of land. Does the described strip prevail over the actual location or vice-versa? This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 8 pages. This 10-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
