Cramer v. Roberts

Decided: March 21, 1952.

ERNEST CRAMER AND ELLEN M. THOMPSON, PLAINTIFFS,
v.
FLORA M. ROBERTS, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS ADMINISTRATRIX OF THE ESTATE OF EMILIE SCHUBERT, DECEASED, DEFENDANT



Haneman, J.s.c.

Before trial the defendant's counsel submitted proof that the defendant was in such poor physical condition that she would never be able to undergo the rigors of a trial. Moreover, the evidence established that she would not even be able to endure the comparatively less upsetting effects of having her deposition taken. Therefore, it was stipulated that the trial should proceed under the rules of evidence applicable as if the defendant had died.

The will reads as follows:

"Wildwood, N.J.

8/29/'47

To whom it may concern --

Cash in the sum of $3,536.32

531/1539 shares of the capital stock of Wild-

wood Trust Co., Wildwood, N.J. appraised at ...
