ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO

Syllabus

In the courts of the United States, the presiding judge may, in submitting a case to the jury, express his opinion on the facts, and when no rule of law is incorrectly stated and all matters of fact are ultimately submitted

to the jury, such expression is not reviewable on writ of error. In this case, there was no error in the charge of the court to the jury.
