Notes / Description: 

Plaintiff Robinson claimed that the defendant company sold him a lot of land in Rockwood under the false representation that a blast furnace was going to be built nearby. The plaintiff claimed he would not have purchased the land for the agreed upon price if they had not sworn that the furnace was about to be constructed, thereby increasing the value of the land.
