U.S. Supreme Court

Quinn v. Chapman, 111 U.S. 445 (1884)

Quinn v. Chapman

Submitted March 28, 1884

Decided April 21, 1884

111 U.S. 445


The facts in this case show no reason why the equitable claim of the plaintiff in error to a tract of public land patented to the defendant should prevail over the legal title.

A rule formerly prevailing in the Land Office forbidding the filing of a declaratory statement based upon an alleged right of preemption, having its origin subsequent to the commencement of a contest between other parties for the same land, is not ground for rejecting the claim if it is otherwise equitable.
