A special legal proceeding to determine ownership of [wex:real property]. A party with a claim of ownership to land can file an action to quiet title, which serves as a sort of lawsuit against anyone and everyone else who has a claim to the land. If the owner prevails in the quiet title action, no further challenges to the [wex:title] can be brought.
See, e.g. Alaska v. United States, 545 U.S. 75 (2005).
