United States v. Garcia, 63 U.S. 22 How. 274 274 (1859)

United States v. Garcia

63 U.S. (22 How.) 274


Where there was an order from the governor allowing a claimant to search for land in California, and the claimant subsequently petitioned the governor for a grant, who referred the petition to the alcalde by a marginal order, and the alcalde reported that the land did not belong to any private individual, this does not amount to a vested interest in the land, binding on the government.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
