MADE AGAINST PRINTER RACEHORSE CASE SEQUEL P.A. PALMERSTON N., this day. A claim for £1000 damages was made in the Supreme Court to-day before Mr. Justice Pair and a jury by James Hill-Motion, veterinary surgeon, against William Jonathan Crawford, a printer, of Palmerston North. Plaintiff alleged that defendant falsely and maliciously, without any reasonable or probable cause, preferred and prosecuted charges alleging perjury against plaintiff. The case arose from Magistrate's Court proceedings on May 30 and June 1 last, when Hill-Motion was prosecuted before Mr. H. P. Lawry, S.M., on an information laid by Crawford alleging that Hill-Motiori committed perjury when giving evidence in a Supreme Court civil claim last year over the racehorse Rajputana, in which Crawford was concerned. After hearing the evidence for the prosecution, the magistrate dismissed the case. Defence in the present action is general denial of plaintiff's claims. (Proceeding.) WAAF FATALLY HURT P.A.
