Hodges v. Easton

Decided December 4, 1882

Syllabus

Certain questions, covering only a part of the material issues of fact, were propounded to the jury, who returned them with the answers thereto, are a special verdict. The judgment against the defendant recites that it was rendered "upon the special verdict of the jury, and facts conceded or not disputed upon the trial." The record does not disclose the evidence, and no general verdict was rendered. Held that the judgment, not being sustained by the special verdict, must be reversed and a new trial ordered.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
