Suits Filed
Lorain, O., - Jan 1. - Joseph Booker, a saloonkeeper, filed suit Monday for $2000 against Thomas Price, John Easterling and others, members of the Ohio Liquor league, alleging that they have boycotted him and ruined his saloon and lunch business by preventing him from "purchasing beer, bread and buns, ice and other necessary articles." He was granted a temporary injunction against the defendants. It is said that Booker violated an agreement to sell no large glasses of beer. [Marion Daily Mirror, Jan 1, 1907]

Bertha (Buehring) Hart, of Carlisle, executrix of the Estate of Henry Hart, has filed suit against the village of Oberlin for the sum of $3,5000 damage, which she alleges has sustained to her land by reason of the contamination of the water of Plum Creek by sewage from Oberlin.  These cases will probably be strung out over many terms of court before they reach a hearing or are terminated. [The Oberlin News, Feb. 11, 1910]

The case against Elmer Kent, who was accused of passing himself off as an unmarried man to a young woman with whom he was keeping company, was dismissed on Tuesday.  The plaintiff admitted she knew Mrs. Kent. [The Elyria Democrat (Elyria, OH) Thursday, April 30, 1914]
