No. 140

Argued January 3, 1938

Decided January 17, 1938

302 U.S. 620

Syllabus

1. Creek lands, erroneously surveyed as lands of other tribes, were, because of the error and through misapplication of an Act of Congress, disposed of by allotment and patent in severalty to members of the other tribes and by sale and patent to settlers. Held that the taking took place not at the date of the Act, but at the times of the several dispositions, and valuations for the purpose of fixing compensation must be as of those times. Cf. s.c. 295 U. S. 295 U.S. 103. P. 302 U. S. 620.

2. Rules laid down to govern the valuations. P. 302 U. S. 622.

84 Ct.Cls. 12 reversed.

Certiorari, post, p. 666, to review a judgment fixing compensation to the Creek Nation for lands taken by the United States. chanrobles.com-red
