Frequently Asked Questions
What is the role of a judge in sealing a bill of exceptions?
The role of a judge in sealing a bill of exceptions is crucial in the legal process. The judge's responsibility is to sign and file the bill with the trial court clerk once all parties involved agree with what is stated in the bill of exceptions. This bill is used to question the law, particularly to highlight any mistakes that may have been made. The judge's seal on the bill of exceptions signifies the end of the issue between the two parties involved in the case. The judge's role extends to signing the bill of exception, and once sealed, the evidence for the parties is contained within the bill of exceptions. Any details not appearing on the bill, such as exceptions and objections, can be tried. The judge can seal the bill of exceptions even after he or she is out of office or once the record has been taken off by a writ of error.
