MOTION IS DENIED.
Hooker, Corser & Whitaker May Not File
Rutland, March 13. An important de
cision in the. caw of Hooker, t'orscr A
Mitchel against James F. Hooker, W. H.
t'orscr and C. D. Whitaker was handed
down by Judge Fred M. Butler yester
day, when he denied the motion of the
defendant, asking permission to file an
amended or new answer. The plaintiff
company contended a new answer such
as the defedants asked to make would
open up the entire case, which has been
before the courts of Vermont, New York
land the United States supreme court for
several years, much testimony having
been taken before M. C. Webber of this
city a special master.
The plaintiff company, a Brattlcboro
concern, sued the defendants, former
members of the company, claiming that;
after leaving the Vermont concern they I
started a rival business, using the old,
company's trade lists and hiring away
the plaintiff a employes. At a recent -sion
of the Vermont supreme court, the
plaintiff company was sustained, and the
case was remanded for the a-.M-nNcnent
of damages, the plaintiff claim amount
ing to over fllHI.IMHl.
The question of damages beard lc
fore Special Master Webber, who still
has the case, when the defendants asked
for a right to file an amended answer.
They claim that at the time of the
signing of the ''Rutland agreement,"
when a way of disoliug was disided
iikii, it was understood that the defend
ants hail a right to the trade lists ami to
hire the Vermont company's employes.
Both concerns manufacture overalls.
