United States v. Chana - 65 U.S. 131 (1860)
U.S. Supreme Court
United States v. Chana, 65 U.S. 24 How. 131 131 (1860)
United States v. Chana
65 U.S. (24 How.) 131
The decision of this Court in the cases of United States v. Nye, 21 How. 408, and United States v. Rose, 23 How. 262, again affirmed; and as the testimony in the present case is similar to that offered in the above cases, the judgment of the district court in favor of the claimant is reversed.
The claim was based upon Sutter's general title, which has been explained in some of the preceding volumes of these reports.
It was submitted on printed argument by Mr. Black, Attorney General for the United States, no counsel appearing for the appellees. It appears to have been confirmed by the court below before they knew the decision of this Court with regard to Sutter's general title.
