Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company v. Arctic Iron Company
Argued November 22, 1918
Decided December 23, 1918
248 U.S. 178
A certificate from the circuit court of appeals consisting of recitals of facts interblended with questions of law, or of recitals which fail in themselves to distinguish between ultimate and merely evidential facts, affords no basis under the statute (Jud.Code § 239) either for answering the questions propounded or for exercising the discretionary power to call up the whole record, and must be dismissed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
