Colclough v. Ollivant


A breach of promise case, the plaintiff being a widow over 40, the defendant a weak-minded man of 25. The formal defence was a denial of the promise, but practically the matter resolved itself into the question whether the plaintiff took advantage of the defendant's weakness of mind to entrap him into an offer.—Verdict for the defendant.—Manchester Guardian, July 25th.
