A district judge is not disqualified by Jud.Code, § 120, from sitting in the circuit court of appeals upon review of a conviction for conspiracy involving no question that had been considered by him in the district court, merely because he had overruled a motion to quash the indictment made by a co-defendant of the plaintiff in error, who was not tried, and in another case, of like character but not involving the plaintiff in error, had overruled a like motion, presided at the trial and sentenced a defendant.
