Treat Mfg. Co. v. Standard Steel & Iron Co., 157 U.S. 674 (1895)
Treat Manufacturing Company v. Standard Steel and Iron Company
Submitted March 25, 1895
Decided April 8, 1895
157 U.S. 674
Where the trial judge is satisfied upon the evidence that the plaintiff is not entitled to recover, and that a verdict, if rendered for plaintiff, must be set aside, the court may instruct the jury to find for the defendant, and in such case no constitutional question arises; but if the court errs as matter of law in so doing, the remedy lies in a review in the appropriate court.
The case is stated in the opinion.
