Brown v. Colorado - 106 U.S. 95 (1882)
U.S. Supreme Court
Brown v. Colorado, 106 U.S. 95 (1882)
Brown v. Colorado
Decided November 20, 1882
106 U.S. 95
The State of Colorado brought ejectment in one of her courts and offered in evidence the defendant's deed to the Territory of Colorado for the demanded premises. He objected to its introduction upon the ground that at its date, "the territory had no right to take a conveyance of real estate without the consent of the government of the United States." The objection was overruled. Held that the judgment rendered for the state is not subject to review here, it not appearing that any federal question was either raised and passed upon or necessarily involved.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
