United States v. Evans

9 U.S. (5 Cranch) 280

ERROR TO THE DISTRICT COURT

FOR THE KENTUCKY DISTRICT

Syllabus

In this case it was decided:

It is not a ground for a writ of error that the judge below refused to reinstate a cause after nonsuit.

In the court below, the judge at the trial rejected certain testimony which was offered by the attorney for the United States, who thereupon took a bill of exceptions, and became nonsuit, and afterwards, at the same term moved the court to set aside the nonsuit and grant a new trial upon the ground that the judge had erred in rejecting the testimony. But the court overruled the motion and refused a new trial, whereupon the attorney for the United States sued out his writ of error.

Page 9 U. S. 281

MR. CHIEF JUSTICE MARSHALL delivered the opinion of the Court that in such a case, where there has been a nonsuit and a motion to reinstate overruled, the Court could not interfere.

Judgment affirmed.
