Poppe v. Langford
104 U.S. 770
This court has no jurisdiction to reexamine the judgment of a state court affirming that the title of the true owner of lands is extinguished by an adverse possession under color of right for the length of time that would bar an action of ejectment.
Langford, the substituted plaintiff in an action of ejectment, against Poppe, in the District Court of the Fifth Judicial District of California, for the County of San Joaquin, recovered judgment for a tract of land in that county. The only real question involved in the case and passed upon by the supreme
court of the state to which an appeal was taken is stated in the opinion of this Court.
