§56-7-8. Contents of commissioner's report.
The commissioner, or any other person executing an order of
reference, in all cases, shall return with his report all the
evidence taken upon the execution of the reference, and the
exceptions, if any, taken to his report, and shall submit such
remarks upon exceptions as he may deem pertinent; and he shall also
return with his report the decrees, orders and notices under which
he acted. He shall not copy in his account or report any papers;
and, if there has been a previous account or report, he shall not
copy it into his report except so far as may be necessary to make
such report a complete account and report in accordance with the
decree of reference entered in the cause. Everything improperly
copied into a commissioner's account shall be expunged at his cost
on the application of either party; and if on account of his
negligence or misconduct a report be recommitted, he shall bear the
cost occasioned thereby.
