Decided: November 18, 1936.
CENTRAL SURETY AND INSURANCE CORPORATION, A CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT,
WHITE BUS COMPANY, INCORPORATED, A NEW JERSEY CORPORATION, DEFENDANT-RESPONDENT
On appeal from the First District Court of the city of Newark.
For the plaintiff-appellant, Reuben F. Goldstein.
For the defendant-respondent, Richard Spitz.
Before Justices Trenchard, Bodine and Heher.
[117 NJL Page 300]
The opinion of the court was delivered by
TRENCHARD, J. This action was brought by the plaintiff below to recover the balance alleged to be due for premium under a policy of insurance. The defendant filed a counterclaim averring an over-payment thereof and demanding the amount of such over-payment.
The District Court judge, sitting without a jury, rendered judgment for the defendant and against the plaintiff, and the plaintiff appeals.
The only specifications of alleged errors filed by the appellant are these:
"1. The said court erred in rendering judgment in favor of the defendant-respondent on the plaintiff-appellant's case, and erred in rendering judgment in favor of the defendant-respondent against the plaintiff-appellant on the defendant-respondent's counter-claim.
"2. The said court erred in failing to enter judgment in favor of the plaintiff-appellant on the plaintiff-appellant's case, and further erred in failing to enter a judgment in favor of the plaintiff-appellant upon the defendant-respondent's counter-claim."
Now the mere assertion (as here) that there was error in giving judgment to one party rather than to another, is insufficient as a specification of error, and will not justify a review of such judgment.
