United States v. Roselius

56 U.S. (15 How.) 36

Syllabus

Where a party claimed title to a tract of land in Louisiana under a judicial sale in 1760, and alleged that he and those under whom he claimed, had been in peaceable possession ever since the sale, a case of perfect title is presented which is not within the jurisdiction of the district court, under the acts of 1824 and 1844.

Upon the sufficiency of the evidence to sustain the title no opinion is expressed.

The case is sully stated in the opinion of the Court.
