Abstract

Re: Seyfert case. She knew the note was given to Mr. Seyfert as an accommodation; could this be the basis for a new trial? TAE would like to have one by this means or by appeal. If you don't think new trial is possible, or if a different outcome would be unlikely, probably the best course would be to make a settlement. "Mr. Edison has not property in New Jersey sufficient to satisfy the judgment. The property at Menlo Park belongs to the Edison Electric Light Co.; and the furniture and personal property in Mr. Edison's house belongs to his wife. The title of the house isin him, but is mortagaged to nearly its full value; so that the plaintiff to satisfy her judgment will probably have to sue upon it here which would entail considerable delay. If therefore, Mr. Edison was disposed to fight this claim as bitterly as possible, he could delay the plaintiff considerably. Under these circumstances, would she not take less than the face of her judgment." TAE has her receipt for $300, which should be deduced from the judgment.
