ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO

Syllabus

Instructions to a jury upheld where they could not have prejudiced the party complaining.

On a writ of error, this Court cannot review any error committed by a jury in finding an amount of damages, nor take cognizance of a complaint that a motion for a new trial was overruled, or that the verdict of the jury was contrary to law and not warranted by the testimony.
