United States v. Turner (52 U.S. 663)
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.
