Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences in court opinions related to bills of exceptions?
Court opinions related to bills of exceptions can vary significantly. The bill of exceptions is a legal document that is used to highlight a mistake or error in a court's decision. It’s used as evidence once it's in the records and can be signed and filed by the judge with the trial court clerk once all parties agree with what is stated in the bill. The purpose of the bill of exceptions is to question the law, particularly to highlight a mistake that has been made. However, there are differences in court opinions on when and how these bills should be filed. For instance, special verdicts are materially different than bills of exception, as stated in 2 Bin. 92. Furthermore, the law applies to both the defendant and plaintiff, and a bill of exception can only be used in a civil case. A judge may have to seal a bill of exceptions if he or she is found at fault for making a wrong decision in a court of law, whether the decision was made to the jury or while making a verdict in court.
