1939: Attorneys Help Meet Plaintiff’s Demands

Middletown, Conn.–(U.P.)–Thomas Frissell wanted to settle an automobile accident damage suit for $22.50, all the money he had, but Rudolph Klare, plaintiff, insisted he would accept not a penny less than $25.

Attorneys for the two young men argued in vain for a compromise and finally, in desperation, dug into their own pockets and produced $1.25 each to pay Klare in full.

From The Times (Hammond, Indiana), Wednesday, July 12, 1939.
