Oct. 26, 1910 · Supreme Court of North Carolina
153 N.C. 322


(Filed 26 October, 1910.)

Negligence — Evidence—Nonsuit.

Motion to nonsuit properly overruled in tbis case, there being sufficient evidence of negligence to take the case to the jury.

Appeal by defendant from O. II. Allen, J., at the April Term, 1910, of Waile.

B. G. Beclcwith for plaintiff.

John W. Hinsdale for defendant.

Peb Oubiam.

The Court is of opinion that the testimony of the plaintiff himself was amply sufficient to justify the court below in submitting the issue of negligence to the jury, notwithstanding the contradicting evidence of defendant, however strong, and therefore the motion to nonsuit was properly overruled.

We have examined the several exceptions to the evidence and charge of the court and are of opinion that no substantial error has been committed of sufficient importance to warrant us in ordering a new trial.

We therefore hold there is no reversible error.
