Settlement Of Dispute Over Flats Suggested At the suggestion of Mr. Justice Richards, a suit in the Supreme Court Iby Carl August Louis Neumann, of Esplanade, Semaphore, against Ida May Hall, of the same address, was ad- journed until today to enable further negotiations with a view to a settle- ment. Neumann set out that he and the; defendant were the joint owners of a block of nine flats known as Mayola., Each occupied a flat, and they shared the profits of the letting of the seven! other flats equally. During 1931 and 11932 the business did not show suffl- cient profits to support both of them, and on January 28, 1933, they orally agreed that he should try to earn a living carting with a motor truck, while the defendant managed the flats, re- taining sufficient for reasonable living expenses and accounting to him for his
share of the balance. The defendant, had retained her profit, but had neglected and refused to account to him for his. He claimed an account. The defendant denied any such agreement, and contended that the plaintiff had released his share to her on her undertaking to pay all rates, taxes, and repairs. She counter-1 claimed an order for the sale of the; property and the distribution of the proceeds. Mr. T. E. Cleland appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. K. V. McEntee for the defendant.
