U.S. Supreme Court
Weiler v. United States, 323 U.S. 606 (1945)
Weiler v. United States
Argued January 10, 11, 1945
Decided January 29, 1945
323 U.S. 606
2. In a prosecution for perjury, the federal district court erred in refusing the defendant's requested instruction to the effect that, in order to convict, the falsity of the statement made under oath must be established by the testimony of two independent witnesses or by one witness and corroborating circumstances. P. 323 U. S. 610.
3. This Court is unable to say that the error of the district court in refusing the requested instruction was harmless. Goins v. United States, 99 F.2d 147, distinguished. P. 323 U. S. 611.
143 F.2d 204 reversed.
Certiorari, post, p. 694, to review the affirmance of a conviction of perjury.
