Bucklin v. United States (No. 1)

No. 572

Submitted October 21, 1895

Decided November 13, 1895

159 U.S. 682


The consolidation of several indictments against different persons growing out of the same transaction, and the trial of all at the same time and by the same jury, if not excepted to at the time, cannot be objected to after verdict.

The indictment in this case in every substantial particular states an offense against the laws of the United States.

A refusal to grant a new trial cannot be reviewed on writ of error.

An instruction, on the trial of several defendants indicted separately for offences growing out of the same transaction, that, while they might find a verdict of guilty as to all the defendants, or find some guilty and some not guilty, they could not find a verdict as to some and disagree as to others contains prejudicial error which may be taken advantage of by a defendant who is found guilty and convicted.

The case is stated in the opinion.
