Saturday, January 11, 2020, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
This session will discuss various Kansas Supreme Court cases which bear on the practice of surveying in Kansas. The reference text will be SURVEYOR’S GUIDE TO THE SUPREME COURT OF KANSAS, by Brian Portwood, PS, available for download at https://ksls.com/Land-Surveyors-Guide . We will concentrate on the PLSS cases: Parks v Baker (1909), Edwards v Fleming (1911) and Neiman v Davis (1948). In addition to these cases we will explore the peculiarities of KSA 19-1411 on the establishment of center corners and quarter-section corners of sections closing on a parallel or baseline. We will also explore the Kansas Supreme c=Court perspective on adverse possession and KSA 60-503 Adverse Possession.
Time permitting we will explore the various limitation on actions statutes contained in KSA Chapter 60 as they relate to the practice of surveying (covered in an article that I wrote several years ago based on a court case in Kansas that I was involved in.)
