California Statute, Act of April 16, 1850
3rd Division, Section 14. No black or mulatto person, or Indian, shall be permitted to give evidence in favor of, or against, any white person. Every person who shall have one eighth part or more of Negro blood shall be deemed a mulatto, and every person who shall have one half of Indian blood shall be deemed an Indian.
In the case of People v. Hall in 1854 (a case in which a Chinese man was murdered, the defendant was white, and the only witnesses were Chinese), a California Supreme Court judge ruled that this statute included Asians. He based his opinion on his reasoning that since Native Americans are believed to have emigrated from the Asian continent after the last Ice Age, the “Mongolian” race can be considered in a similar class as Native Americans, and thus ineligible to testify against whites. Without the testimony of the Chinese witnesses, the case was thrown out.
