Highlight

The N.D. Rules of Civil Procedure do not require a water district to begin a civil action by serving a summons when applying for a permit to enter land for examining, surveying and mapping a proposed flood control project.
The district's examinations are not limited to visual examinations, and the landowners are not entitled to a jury trial in the preliminary stage.
