Brockett v. Brockett
44 U.S. (3 How.) 691
When an issue is directed by a court of chancery to be tried by a court of law, and in the course of the trial at law questions are raised and bills of exceptions taken, these questions must be brought to the notice and decision of the court of chancery which sends the issue.
If this is not done, the objections cannot be taken in an appellate court of chancery.
If the chancery court below refers matters of account to a master, his report cannot be objected to in the appellate court unless exceptions to it have been filed in the court below in the manner pointed out in the seventy-third chancery rule of this Court.
The case is sufficiently stated in the opinion of the Court.
