The case-in-chief is Bull v. Pinkham Engineering, Supreme Court of Vermont 2000. The National Society of Professional Surveyor’s (NSPS) “Surveyor’s Creed and Canons” is the barometer for measuring the ethics in the case. The surveyor in the case prepared a subdivision plat to create new lots and facilitate the conveyance of land, but never surveyed the perimeter of the parent tract, relying instead on a tax map. This resulted in some of the land not being included in the subdivision and—ultimately—landlocked. The surveyor claimed that he owed no duty to the client verify the perimeter boundary. The trial court found that this was below the standard of care for land surveyors. But because there was no expert testimony on this point, the surveyor claimed that his actions were not below the standard of care. Read the results for yourself. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 10 pages. Along with a copy of the Creed and Canons, this is a 14-Page document with a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter, the Creed and Canons, 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.
