Piscatore v. Rosa

Decided: September 22, 1939.

CATHERINE PISCATORE AND CARMINE PISCATORE, PLAINTIFFS-RESPONDENTS,

It was not incumbent upon defendant to prove that the illness was due to other causes; nor would it

have been sufficient for the plaintiffs to show that the ailment might have resulted from the eating of the macaroni. Nevertheless, we think that the proofs support the factual finding in plaintiff's favor.

For reversal -- THE CHIEF JUSTICE, ...
