What Went Wrong? I – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Sullivan v. Kanable, Illinois Court of Appeals, 2015. As we research and review case for new editions of The Lucas Letter, we often find cases where something went wrong for various and sundry reason. Meaning that had mistakes not been made the outcome in the case could have gone the other way. Often it is the testimony of the surveyor experts, sometimes it is the attorneys working the case, it can be the judge trying the case, or even the appellate court decision that is the problem. This case involves the surveyor experts and the opinion of the appellate court that is problematic. We study the case to determine “what went wrong” and avoid the same pitfalls ourselves. 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 attached cases.
