U.S. Supreme Court

Reed v. Gardner, 84 U.S. 17 Wall. 409 409 (1873)

Reed v. Gardner

84 U.S. (17 Wall.) 409


In passing upon the questions presented in a bill of exceptions, this Court will not look beyond the bill itself. The pleadings and the statements of the bill, the verdict and the judgment are the only matters that are properly before it. Depositions, exhibits, or certificates not contained in the bill cannot be considered by the Court. The Court declares its intention to adhere to what is above presented as its practice, and declares further that the case of Flanders v. Tweed, 9 Wall. 425, was exceptional.

Gardner sued Reed in the court below. His declaration alleged that one Wilson had delivered to the defendant cotton upon an agreement that he, the defendant, would sell chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

the same and out of the proceeds pay to him, Gardner, the plaintiff, $4,000, in which sum the said Wilson was indebted to Gardner; that the property was sold, that the net proceeds were $9,000, by means whereof the defendant became liable to pay to the plaintiff the $4,000, and that he refused to pay the same. To this the defendant interposed a general denial and several special pleas. A trial was had and, verdict and judgment having been given for the plaintiff, the defendant brought the case here.

The bill of exceptions contained no statement of the evidence or of the facts upon which the questions arose. It consisted only of the charge of the judge and of requests and refusals to charge. There was, however, in the transcript a number of depositions, exhibits, certificates &c., which appeared to have been used in the trial of the case. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
