REVIEW, practice. A second examination of a matter. For example, by the laws 
of Pennsylvania, the courts having jurisdiction of the subject may grant an 
order for a view of a proposed road; the viewers make a report, which when 
confirmed by the court would authorize the laying out of the same. After 
this, by statutory provision, the parties may apply for a review, or second 
examination; and the last viewers may make a different report. For the 
practice of reviews in chancery, the reader is referred to Bill of Review, 
and the cases there cited.
