Anthony v. Louisville & Nashville R. Co., 132 U.S. 172 (1889)
Anthony v. Louisville and Nashville R. Company
Argued and submitted November 7, 1889
Decided November 18, 1889
132 U.S. 172
An exception to the refusal of the presiding judge at a jury trial to instruct the jury in language prayed for by counsel is of no avail if the refusal be followed by instructions in the general charge substantially to the same effect, but in the language of the court.
A general exception to the whole of a charge to the jury will not avail a plaintiff in error if the charge contains distinct propositions and anyone of them is free from objections.
The case is stated in the opinion.
