Definition of REVIEW


REVIEW

practice. A second examination of a matter. For example,
by the laws of Pennsylvania, the courts having jurisdiction of the subject may
grant an order for a view of a proposed road; the viewers make a report, which
when confirmed by the court would authorize the laying out of the same. After
this, by statutory provision, the parties may apply for a review, or second
examination; and the last viewers may make a different report. For the practice
of reviews in chancery, the reader is referred to Bill of Review, and the cases
there cited.
