U.S. Supreme Court
United States v. Galbraith, 63 U.S. 22 How. 89 89 (1859)
United States v. Galbraith
63 U.S. (22 How.) 89
Where the clear weight of the proof is against the possession or occupation by the grantee of land in California, the date of the grant was altered without any explanation of the alteration, and the genuineness of the signature of the governor to a certificate of approval of the departmental assembly doubted, this Court will reverse the decree of the court below confirming the claim, and remit it for further evidence and examination.
The history and nature of the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.
