United States Supreme Court

52 U.S. 663

United States  v.  Turner

THIS was an appeal from the District Court of the United States for the District Court of Louisiana.

It was a petition filed in the District Court by the appellees, who claimed a tract of land under the Maison-Rouge grant.

The District Court decided in favor of the petitioners, and the United States appealed to this court.

It was submitted by Mr. Crittenden (Attorney-General), for the United States, upon the ground that this court had already decided, in the case of United States v. King (3 Howard, 773, and 7 Howard, 833), that the grant was invalid.

Mr. Chief Justice TANEY delivered the opinion of the court.
