News in Brief
Lewis A. Colby, a weathy farmer, has been sued by Mrs. Albert McGhee for $30,000 for slander.

Personal Mention
Hon. Horace S. Clark of Mattoon, Commander, Illinois Department Grand Army of the Republic, is in attendance at court. He is one of the attorneys for the defense in the McGee vs. Colby slander case.



COLBY CASE IN COURT

Third Trial of the Slander Action

Entries on the Docket

Judge Vail resumed court this afternoon and after making a number of entries called up the slander case of Mrs. Clara E. McGee of Macon, vs. L.S. Colby, an action in trespass, claiming damages for slander on the part of Mr. Colby. There have been two long drawn out trials on the case. The first time the jury disagreed. At the second trial, the jury gave the plaintiff $1,250, but the defendant's motion for a new trial was allowed, and now the case comes up for a new trial. All parties were ready to proceed and the work of selecting a jury began at 10:15 a.m. The attorneys for Mrs. McGee are Buckingham and Shroll and Johns and Randolph. The defendant is represented by Mills Bros. and Mills and Hon. Horace S. Clark of Mattoon. Every point in the case will be closely contested.



Decatur, IL Daily Republican, October 1891
The McGee-Colby Slander Case

The McGee-Colby slander case, wherein Mrs. Carrie E. McGee, wife of Albert McGee, residing at Macon, sued C.S. Colby, formerly of Macon, now living in Decatur, for slander, claiming $5,000 damages, has at last reach a final conclusion. The result of the first trial was a disagreement of the jury. The second trial resulted in a verdict for the plaintiff, the jury assessing damages at $1250. On the ground of some defect in the evidence, a new trial was granted. In the last trial Buckingham and Shroll and Johns and Randolph appeared for the plaintiff, and Mills Bros. and Clark for the defendant.

The case was well tried as all the attorneys are prominent in their profession After the evidence was all in the Judge limited the attorneys in their arguments to one and a half hours for each side. The case went to the jury yesterday evening. Judge Vail instructed the jury to bring in a sealed verdict, and having done so, they would be at liberty to go home until the court again convened, which it would not do until Monday afternoon. The jury repaired to their room and wrestled with the case until 4 o'clock this morning, when they reached a verdict, which they sealed and handed in as directed by the court. It is, of course, not known positively, what the verdict is, but from some pointers a representative of the REPUBLICAN got, it is safe to say that the verdict is for the plaintiff, fixing the damages at about $500.


Thus, it is supposed by those who ought to know, will be the end of this case.
Parents: Jesse COLBY and Lydia SCOTT.
