Action Against Elberts Is Dismissed by Judge.
In the superior court the second suit brought by Jesse W. Walling against his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Elbert, like the first, has been dismissed. Last March the first suit, wherein the jury gave a verdict to the plaintiff, was set aside by Judge Bruce Blake because of insufficiency of evidence. The second suit was based on the claim that the plaintiff had deeded 40 acres of land to the defendants on their promise to board the plaintiff as long as he lived.
The father is 80 years of age. The second dismissal stipulates that the cause be dismissed without prejudice.
