Riparian Rights V



Riparian Rights V – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Magnuson v. Cossette, Minnesota Court of Appeals 2006. Can a riparian owner be cut off from their riparian rights? What happens when a survey is made of once riparian property and the new metes and bounds legal description is written to go to the sea wall and thence “along the sea wall”? Will the subsequent conveyance carry the riparian rights along with it? What happens if it doesn’t? Read the case and find out. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 9 pages. This 11-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
