DAVIS v. THE STATE.
43812.
FELTON, Chief Judge.
Altering a check. Gwinnett Superior Court. Before Judge Pittard.
The appeal in this case is from the judgment of conviction and sentence under an indictment charging the offense of altering a check. A motion for a new trial, on the general grounds and one special ground, was filed aid overruled. There was no appeal from the judgment overruling the motion for a new trial. Under the ruling in Hill v. Willis, 224 Ga. 263 (4) (161 SE2d 281) the unappealed-from judgment overruling the motion for a new trial become the law of the case as to all questions covered by the motion for new trial including that of the sufficiency of the evidence to support the verdict (which latter question was not decided by the Supreme Court in the case cited, which necessarily means that the judgment on the overruling of the motion for a new trial as to the general grounds became the law of the case when not appealed from).
Under the above authority the judgments of the trial court must be affirmed.
Reid Merritt, Solicitor General, for appellee.
W. P. Tapp, for appellant.
ARGUED JULY 1, 1968 -- DECIDED JULY 16, 1968.
