Syllabus

After the submission of a law case tried without a jury, the District Court ordered "that judgment be entered for plaintiff . . . upon findings of facts and conclusions of law to be presented." Thereafter, in accordance with a rule of the court, special findings of fact and conclusions of law were proposed by each side; those offered by the plaintiff were adopted by the judge, and formal judgment was ordered and entered. Held that the first order was preliminary; that rejections of defendant's proposed findings were rulings made "in the progress of the trial," within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 875, and reviewable by the Circuit Court of Appeals. P. 303 U. S. 215.

90 F.2d 644 reversed.

Certiorari, 302 U.S. 674, to review the affirmance of a judgment of the District Court in an action at law tried without a jury.
