WAYNE - A Huntington woman is charging a Lavalette man with performing a wrongful survey on her land and costing her $200,000.

Deborah Dauray filed the lawsuit March 30 in Wayne Circuit Court against Randall Thompson.

Dauray says Thompson's survey cost the property owners, Ira and Deborah Moore, use of their driveway and $200,000 of damage to her property.

She is claiming that he erred as a professional and should be accountable.

"Mr. Thompson, a licensed surveyor, represented himself to the Moores as a land surveyor, civil engineer; all of which was boldly printed on his personal business card," she says. "It is too late now for Mr. Thompson, after all his actions to the contrary, to claim that he was not acting as a licensed land surveyor."

Dauray says there is a discrepancy between deeds to her land, and that one has a typo on it.

She is seeking $200,000.

Judge Darrell Pratt has been assigned the case.
