Doe ex dem. McCall v. Carpenter – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Doe ex dem. McCall v. Carpenter, 59 U.S. 297 (1855), the issue was whether a partition of land could be made between two parties who had conflicting claims to the same land. The plaintiff, McCall, had purchased the land from the original owner, while the defendant, Carpenter, had obtained a deed from the original owner’s heir. The court held that the partition could not be made, as the conflicting claims could not be reconciled. The court also held that the plaintiff was entitled to the land, as his deed was the first in time.
