DECIDED AGAINST MRS. ANN WILSON
Supreme Court Favored the Detroit Firm
LOST SEAL SKIN SACQUE
Was the Cause of the Trouble - Suit Brought in Name of the Bank
The case of the State Savings Bank vs. Walter Buhl & Co., of Detroit, has just been affirmed by the supreme court.
Mrs. Ann Wilson, who lived on Washington street, opposite the high school, was the possessor of a sealskin sacque. She sent it to Walter Buhl & Co., one summer to have it cared for and overhauled. When she came to call for it in the winter the sacque could not be found. She wrote for it several times and finally the Detroit firm sent her a check for $300. She deposited this in the State Savings bank and it was sent to Detroit for collection.
It happened that the next day after sending out the check the sacque was found in the Detroit store and Walter Buhl & Co. refused to pay the check which, in consequence, went to protest.
In the meantime, Mrs. Wilson had purchased another sacque and she therefore sued the Detroit firm on the check in the name of the Savings bank.
In the circuit court Walter Bruhl & Co. won and the supreme court affirmed the decision.
