U.S. Supreme Court

Chaboya v. Umbarger, 97 U.S. 280 (1877)

Chaboya v. Umbarger

97 U.S. 280


A claim under a Mexican grant was, in 1862, confirmed by this Court to A. to the extent of five hundred acres of land. The title thereto was afterwards transferred to B., who brought ejectment therefor against A. The latter offered in evidence a duly certified copy of a decree of the district court, rendered in pursuance of a mandate of this Court of the 13th of June, 1866, confirming the title of the City of San Jose, as a successor of the Mexican pueblo of that name, to certain lands or commons belonging to the pueblo, the outboundaries of which included the demanded premises; but the decree excepted from the confirmation all parcels vested in private proprietorship under grants from lawful authority, which the tribunals of the United States had finally confirmed to parties claiming under such grants. Held that the offered evidence was properly excluded.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
