2736. ERROR, Judges and.—

If, indeed,
a judge goes against law so grossly, so palpably,
as no imputable degree of folly can
account for, and nothing but corruption, malice
or wilful wrong can explain, and especially
if circumstances prove such motives, he
may be punished for the corruption, the malice.
the wilful wrong; but not for the error.—
The Batture Case. Washington ed. viii, 602.
