U.S. Supreme Court
Barnes v. Williams, 24 U.S. 415 (1826)
Barnes v. Williams
24 U.S. 415
Where, in a special verdict, the essential facts are not distinctly found by the jury, although there is sufficient evidence to establish them, this Court will not render a judgment upon such an imperfect special verdict, but will remand the cause to the court below with directions to award a venire facias de novo.
