What does Bill Of Exceptions mean in American Law?

The definition of Bill Of Exceptions in the law of the United States, as defined by the lexicographer Arthur Leff in his legal dictionary is:

formal statement, prepared for use on appeal of a trial judgment, of the objections and exceptions taken to rulings, charges, and other actions of the trial judge, together with the reasons alleged for their incorrectness. It ordinarily had to be signed by the trial judge to attest its accuracy. In modern practice (see, e.g., Fed. R. App. P. 10), no separate certified bill of exceptions need be prepared, it being sufficient to file as part of the record on appeal the relevant portion of the trial transcript showing timely entry of exceptions and objections at the trial. If there is no transcript available, something like a bill of exceptions (appellant prepares statement, appellee objects or proposes amendments, trial judge approves final version) is still necessary. See Fed. R. App. P. 10(c).

The expression “clean bill of health” has passed into ordinary language to mean that a person or organization has been examined and found sound, as in “The brokerage house was investigated by the SEC, and eventually given a clean bill of health.”
