ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
When the trial court has given the substance of a requested charge to the jury, it is under no obligation to repeat it in the requested language.
When evidence offered by one party at the trial tends to discredit that offered by the other, it is for the jury to weigh and decide under proper instructions from the court.
