Mace v. Merrill, 119 U.S. 581 (1887)
Mace v. Merrill
Submitted December 6, 1886
Decided January 10, 1887
119 U.S. 581
As it appears that the right of the State of California to have the lands which are in dispute in this action listed is admitted, it is held that this Court is without jurisdiction over the judgment of the Supreme Court of California upon the adverse claims of the parties. Hastings v. Jackson, 112 U. S. 233, affirmed.
This was an action to try the title to a tract of land listed to California under § 8 of the Act of September 24, 1841. The facts which were claimed to make a federal question are stated in the opinion of the Court.
