Hanna v. Maas, 122 U.S. 24 (1887)
Hanna v. Maas
Argued April 28, 1887
Decided May 23, 1887
122 U.S. 24
No question is presented for the decision of this Court by a bill of exceptions which does not state any rulings in matter of law, or any exceptions to such rulings, otherwise than by referring to an exhibit annexed, containing the whole charge of the court to the jury, and notes of a conversation ensuing between the judge and the counsel of both parties as to the meaning and effect of the charge, interspersed with remarks of either counsel that he excepted to that part of the charge which bore upon a certain subject or to the refusal of the court to charge as orally requested in the course of that conversation.
When a bill of exceptions is so framed as not to present any question of law in a form to be revised by this Court, the judgment must be affirmed.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
