In re Streep
Submitted January 21, 1895
Decided January 28, 1895
156 U.S. 207
The judge in a circuit court having settled and signed a bill of exceptions, this Court will not, on an application supported by affidavits that the bill as settled and signed is incorrect, issue a writ of mandamus requiring him to resettle them.
This was an application by Louis F. Streep for leave to file a petition for a mandamus requiring the judge of the District Court of the United States for the Eastern District of New
York, acting as judge of the Circuit Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York, to resettle the bill of exceptions in a certain cause lately pending in said circuit court, and tried before that judgment wherein the United States were plaintiffs and Louis F. Streep was defendant, as to a certain request to charge, "according to the truth as the same appears by the stenographer's minutes taken on the trial," in respect of which request to charge affidavits to the effect that the bill of exceptions as settled and signed by the judge was incorrect accompanied the application.
Applicant had previously moved in the circuit court for such resettlement of the bill of exceptions, and the motion had been denied.
