74 If either party feels aggrieved at the way in which the case has been settled by the trial justice, the usual method is to move for a re-settlement upon affidavits. An appeal lies from the order made upon this motion. Zimmer . Met. St. Ry, Co., 28 App. Div. 504, 51 N. Y. Supp. 504, 5 Anno. Cas. 283; N. Y. Rubber Co. v. Rothery, 112 N. Y. 592.

The motion must, of course, be heard and decided by the justice who presided at the trial. The practice in New York county will be to move at Special Term, Part I, and have the motion referred to the presiding justice. Henry v. Interurban St. Ry. Co., 115 App. Div. 352. If tried before a
