Land Surveyor – Negligence

The establishment and perpetuation of reliable land corners, monuments, plats, and surveys, together with their official records, are historically of public concern, necessary for the orderly transaction of public affairs and business, and require high standards of care on the part of qualified surveyors. In this case, the surveyor incompetently located corners, failed to file survey records showing corners found and set, failed to perpetuate corners, and failed to designate corners. Surveyor was found guilty of misconduct and his certificate was revoked for thirty days. Simonds v. Board of Examiners for Land Surveyors, 213 Neb. 259, 329 N.W.2d 92 (1983).
