ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO

Syllabus

If the trial court makes the decision of a motion for a new trial depend upon a remission of the larger part of the verdict, this is not a reexamination by the court of facts tried by the jury in a mode not known at the common law, and is no violation of the Seventh Article of Amendment to the Constitution.

An order overruling a motion for a new trial after the plaintiff, by leave of court, has remitted a part of the verdict is not subject to review by this Court upon a writ of error sued out by the party against whom the verdict is rendered.
