UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFFS-APPELLEE; ABE POLLICK, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT, V. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF-APPELLEE

Appeals from the District Court of the United States for the District of New Jersey.

Before BUFFINGTON, DAVIS, and THOMPSON, Circuit Judges.

Per Curiam.

In these cases we are of opinion that, however strong the case against the defendants was, the court, instead of leaving to the jury to decide the question whether the crimes had been committed, used language from which the jury might well infer that the underlying question whether the crimes had been committed was withdrawn from them and decided by the judge.

Accordingly, we reverse the cases and remand them for retrial.
