New York, L.E. & W. R. Co. v. Madison, 123 U.S. 524 (1887)
New York, Lake Erie and Western Railroad Company v. Madison
Argued November 11, 1887
Decided December 5, 1887
123 U.S. 524
If the jury return a verdict for the plaintiff after the court in its charge instructs them to "disregard altogether" evidence on the plaintiff's part which had been improperly introduced and had been excepted to, the defendant cannot assign error here in this respect.
Rulings of the court below on questions of law will not be considered here on a writ of error unless it appears from the bill of exceptions or otherwise in the record that the facts were such as to make them material to the issue which was tried.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
