Aller v. Aller
New Jersey Supreme Court
40 N.J.L. 446 (1878)
Mrs. Aller died and Mr. Aller (defendant) provided notes to two of her daughters promising them money from the estate. When he provided the notes, he told the girls, “Now here, girls, is a nice present for you.” Angelina Aller (plaintiff) filed suit seeking to enforce the note. The verdict was for Ms. Aller. The trial court allowed a rule to show cause at the circuit.
