Notes / Description: 

Moreland sued Williams to collect debt he owed for Moreland's services in fixing an electric fan. Judgment rendered in Moreland's favor for $21. Williams asked for new trial, claiming new evidence--3 witnesses (Jim Finley, Tom Tomlinson, Bob McKinney)-- who would testify one of them was always present at Williams' place of business & Moreland never notified them that motor Williams repaired was not performing satisfactorily (as Moreland had claimed). SC affirmed judgment for Moreland.
