Daughter Asks For New Trial

Father Recovered Sum Sued For in Action Over Realty Transaction.

A motion asking the court to set aside the verdict rendered by a jury in Superior Court Judge Blake’s court Wednesday, and render judgement for the plaintiff in the suit brought by Jesse W. Walling against his son and daughter-in-law, Harvey Elbert and his wife, was filed in superior court today by the defendants.

The jury awarded the full amount asked, $1820, out of which the defendant alleges he had been defrauded by his daughter because he placed too much reliance on her figures in a real estate transaction, to which they were parties.

A motion also was filed asking the court that, in case the court refused to award a judgement for the defendants, a new trial of the case be granted, on the grounds that a fair trial was denied the defendants. The discovery of new evidence also is claimed.
