Thompson v. Los Angeles Farming & Milling Co., 180 U.S. 72 (1901)

Thompson v. Los Angeles Farming and Milling Company

No. 87

Argued and submitted November 8, 1900

Decided January 7, 1901

180 U.S. 72

Syllabus

The papers offered in evidence in this case, instead of showing the nonexistence of special circumstances with reference to the sale to de Celis which authorized the governor to make it, affirm the existence of those circumstances, and the condition of the plaintiff in error is reduced to this dilemma: the papers being ruled out, the validity of the grant will be implied; the papers being ruled in, the validity of the grant will be shown.

The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
