Ledoux v. Black, 59 U.S. 18 How. 473 473 (1855)

Ledoux v. Black

59 U.S. (18 How.) 473

Syllabus

In the case of an imperfect Spanish title to land in Louisiana, a confirmation by Congress is inoperative unless the title or survey under it will enable the court to ascertain the specific boundaries of the land.

If, before a survey in such a case, an entry is made and a patent taken out for land which conflicts with a subsequent survey of the confirmed concession, the patentee has the better title. chanrobles.com-red
