Superior Court

J. Noble JONES has brought suit against William GOLDMAN to have a deed to 1 t 7, blk 34 Reese subdivision, Redwood City declared to be a mortgage. The complaint alleges that the property in question is worth $4000, that on August 30, 1912 plaintiff gave a deed to the realty to defendant for a loan of $1500 with the understanding that the property should revert to JONES on returning the money with interest. In fact it was agreed that the amount was to be paid by December 6, 1912. JONES asks that the deed be declared to be a mortgage and that he be given possession of the realty.

Louisa N. OSTWALD has commenced an action again E.F. FIZPATRICK as executor of the last will and testament of Charles G. OSTWALD, deceased, to quiet title to certain property of the estate located at Millbrae and San Francisco.

Dr. J.L. ROSS has commenced an action again W. Parker LYON and Edward HILDERBRAND to recover the sum of $718.90 for professional services and costs of suit. Some months ago Edward HILDERBRAND in coming to Redwood City from his home at Woodside was run down by LYON’s automobile and was badly injured, being confined to the Huling sanitarium for a long time. HILDERBRAND was laid up for several months and has not yet fully recovered from his injuries. In view of the fact that LYON was responsible, through carelessness, HILDERBRAND feels that he should pay all the doctor bills and other expenses attending his illness. The claim of Dr. ROSS amounts to $267,50, Dr. TAGGART $50, Dr. WILLIAMS of Palo Alto $300, A.D. WALSH Co. $8.50, P.A. RYAN $5.40 and the Huling sanitarium $87.50. All the claims have been assigned to the plaintiff. Mr. LYON, is a multi-millionaire who recently sold his home at Woodside to Walker GRAVES. He is now traveling in Europe. It is just possible that Mr. HILDERBRAND will bring a suit against LYON for damages for a large amount for the injuries he sustained through the alleged carelessness in running the machine down the Woodside grade at a high rate of speed.
