United States v. Bassett
This was an appeal from the District Court of the United States for the northern district of California.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the court.
It was argued by Mr. Hull and Mr. Black (Attorney General) for the United States, and by Mr. Blair and Mr. Volney E. Howard for the appellee.
The case, like the preceding one of Nye, depended upon the validity of Sutter's general title, and the same points are applicable to both.
Mr. Justice CAMPBELL delivered the opinion of the court.
