Bodkin v. Edwards
Motion to dismiss or affirm submitted December 6, 1920
Decided February 28, 1921
255 U.S. 221
1. The court accepts the concurrent findings of the district court and circuit court of appeals upon the facts in an equity case unless clear error is shown. P. 255 U. S. 223.
2. Where the facts determine the decision, and where the record exhibits no clear error in the concurrent findings and the appellant has not brought up all the evidence, a decree may be affirmed on motion to avoid the harmful and useless delay of retaining the case for oral argument. Id.
265 F. 621 affirmed.
[sic] from a decree of the circuit court of appeals
which affirmed a decree of the district court holding Bodkin trustee for Edwards as to certain patented land. The case is stated in the opinion.
