Chavez v. United States

No. 14

Argued October 17-18, 1899

Decided December 22, 1899

175 U.S. 552


In Mexico, in 1831, a departmental assembly or territorial deputation had no power or authority to make a grant of lands, and the fact that the governor presided at a meeting of the territorial deputation at the time such a grant was made, makes no difference, as the power to make the grant was exclusively in the governor, and the territorial deputation had no jurisdiction in the matter.

The statement of the case will be found in the opinion of the Court.
