U.S. Supreme Court

La Joya Grant v. Belen Land Grant, 242 U.S. 595 (1917)

Sevilleta La Joya Grant v. Belen Land Grant

No. 129

Argued December 22, 1916

Decided January 22, 1917

242 U.S. 595

Syllabus

The Court of Private Land Claims derived all of its powers from the Act of March 3, 191, c. 539, 26 Stat. 854.

Under that act, the Court of Private Land Claims had no jurisdiction in confirming a grant and supervising its survey to extend the confirmation and boundaries over land included in another grant confirmed by Congress and patented before the passage of the act, or to alter the boundaries of such other grant as so confirmed and as described in the patent. So held where both grants were complete and perfect before the Mexican cession, and the grant confirmed by Congress was senior in time of grant. Such jurisdiction could not be conferred on the Court of Private Land Claims by consent of the owners of the grant confirmed by Congress.

20 N.M. 145 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
