Bloomington Telephone, Apr 2, 1897, Clipping File, Monroe County Historical Society,
Bloomington, Indiana. NOTE: It seems like there must be a mistake here somewhere since
an article in the clipping file dated January 19, 1897, indicates the case was heard and
$1,250 was awarded.
THE BROWN DAMAGE SUIT
The damage suit of the Sanford Brown estate is to be tried by a struck jury, 12 men to be
selected from the following sixteen names: H. J. Feltus, Samuel Bennett, Robert
Sharpless, Walter Parks, W. H. Lewis, Samuel McWylie, S. E. Carmichael, W. T. Hicks, Omer
Bunger, Gee (?George) Eller, John Koons, George East, Fletcher McConnel, W. B. Baker, Bart
Armstrong and W. P. Koons.
The suit is for $10,000 and is for damages because of the killing of Brown several months
ago by the cars while at work at the quarry. The case was tried once and a $2,500
judgment was secured which by reason of error in the trial was set aside. The trial is
set for next Monday.
