Betsy Cook v William Sutton 1896

Loughborough Herald - 30th April 1896

County Court - Disputing too late.

Betsy Cook, builder, Barrow, sued Wm Sutton, refreshment dealer, Quorn, for 21 6s 10d., balance of payment for a shed erected by plaintiff for defendant in January last year. Mr Bigg was for plaintiff, and stated that the shed was erected for defendant to enable him to carry on business as a refreshment dealer to the navvies on the new railway at Quorn. The cost of the shed was 31 0s 10d., and defendant had paid 9 14s on account. Defendant said that after paying this on account he found that the work had been overcharged for, and had been wrongly measured up. He did not find this out until he received the summons. His Honour thought the defendant had found out the mistake too late. If he had disputed anything he should not have paid on account. Judgment would be for plaintiff.
