Mapping lawsuit dismissed

The lawsuit that many scientists believed would prohibit anyone but licensed surveyors and engineers from making a map (see my May 14 blog), was dismissed by the judge today in summary judgement.

The judgement said "Nothing in the legislative history of the 1988 amendment suggests that the phrase 'surveying and mapping' was intended to broaden the Brooks Act’s focus from construction on federal lands to the procurement of mapping services unrelated to construction on real property."
