Minor v. Tillotson

42 U.S. (1 How.) 287

Syllabus

Whether or not a record contains a bill of exceptions or statement of facts by the court, according to the practice in Louisiana, by which any question of law is brought up for revision in such a form as to enable this Court to decide upon it, and whether or not there is a mass of various and conflicting testimony in relation to facts upon which no jurisdiction can be exercised upon a writ of error are questions to be decided only upon the final hearing of the cause.

The court will not go into this inquiry upon a motion to dismiss the writ of error before the cause is taken up for argument.
