United States v. Patterson, 56 U.S. 15 How. 10 10 (1853)

United States v. Patterson

56 U.S. (15 How.) 10


A claimant of a share of the grants spoken of in the preceding case, having failed to produce evidence of the right of his grantor to convey to him, cannot have a decree in his favor.

A person cannot intervene here who was no party to the suit in the district court. And even if the practice of this Court sanctioned such intervention, there is nothing to show his right to do so in this case.

This was a branch of the preceding case. The original title and the lands were the same. Patterson claimed under a deed executed on the 21st of November, 1836, by the heirs of William Barr deceased, but the deed purported to be executed by their attorney in fact, Robert Thompson.
