SEQUEL TO THE McKERROW DIVORCE SUIT. In the Westminster County Court on Monday, J ndge Lumley Smith had before him the case of Noad v. Lotinga, in which the plaintiff, Mr Charles Noad, a law stationer, carrying on ousi- ness at 59, Carey-street, Chancery-lane, sought to recover the sum of X6 for professional ser- vices rendered in connection with the recent McKerrow divorce case. The defendant, Mrs Lotinga, is the motner of Mrs McKerrow, and resides with her at Barks ton-gardens, Kensing- ton. The plaintiff's case was that some time prior to the divorce proceedings he received in- structions from Mrs Lotinga to make copies from a mass of documents in connection with the case, and he received several letters fr«m her in reference to the matter but when he sent in his account, the defendant denied her liability on the ground that the work was done for her daughter, Mrs McKerrow, and not for her. In the course of his cross-examination the plaintiff admitted that his accounts had been made out in the name of McKb rrow, but that was to be accounted for by the fact that the name was at the time fixed upon his mind. Throughout the whole proceed- ings he looked to Mrs Lotinga for payment, be- cause the ietters of instruction were signed by her.—For the defence Mrs Lot:nga was called, and said she acted merely as the agent of her daughter, who asked her to make inquiries with a view to getting the documents copied. She never instructed the plaintiff to do any work for her, and never agreed to become liable to him. She sanply instructed him on behalf of Mrs McKerrow, who had never, and did not now, dis- pute her liability.—MrsMcKerrow was called, and admitted that the work was done on her behalf, and that she had paid a sum on account. She never disputed her liability, but had never been applied to for payment of the balaiiee.-His Honour, in giving judgment, said it looked very much like a family affair, but at the same time he though: the plaintiff's case must fail, inas- much as his contention was that the work was done to the order of Mrs Lotinga, while as a fact it had been proved that the accounts were sent in to Mrs McKerrow. It was nonsense for per- sons to make blunders of that kind, and if they persisted in doing so they must put up with the consequetices.-J udgruent was given ior the de- fendant, with costs.
