    Anyone know of specific litigation that resolved the conflicting language found in reservations made by the Federal Land Bank of minerals disguised as NPRI during the 1930-40 time periods?  If so, can you direct me toward the case?

    Appreciate it,
    Coyla Holmes,

    Dear Coyla,

    You might be talking about Bailey v. Federal Land Bank of N.O. (Sup. Ct. Miss. 1949)?

    Hope this is helpful.

    I would suggest you try Google Scholar to help you find a relevant case.  I tried a few minutes ago using "Federal Land Bank" as the search term And came up with a 1959 Texas Appellate Court case styled Williamson v. Federal Land Bank of Houston, 326 SW2d 560.
