Johnson v. Harmon, 94 U.S. 371 (1876)

Johnson v. Harmon

94 U.S. 371


1. A bill of exceptions cannot be taken on the trial of a feigned issue directed by a court of equity, or, if taken, can only be used on a motion for a new trial made to that court.

2. As the verdict may or may not have been the ground for the decree, an appeal from the latter cannot be made to turn on the judge's rulings at the trial of the feigned issue, but must be decided upon the whole case, pleadings, evidence, and verdict, giving to the latter as much effect as it is worth.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
