Palmer v. United States

65 U.S. (24 How.) 125

Syllabus

An instrument of writing, purporting to be a grant of land in California by Pio Pico, in 1846, is not sustained by the authority of the public archives or in conformity with the regulations of 1828, and therefore comes within the previous decisions of this Court declaring such grants void.

Moreover, the evidence in the case shows that the alleged grant was utterly fraudulent.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
