Lacano Investments v. Balash

Lacano Investments v. Balash - 8/28/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, Case No. 13-35854. The case involves land patents which gave title to certain streambeds in Alaska that were issued by the federal government many years before Alaska entered the Union. The panel affirmed the dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction of an action against Alaska officials who determined that under the Submerged Lands Act of 1953, streambeds claimed by the plaintiffs were owned by the State of Alaska.
