Eugen Hirsch, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Archer-daniels-midland Company, Defendant-appellee, 299 F.2d 792 (2d Cir. 1962)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit - 299 F.2d 792 (2d Cir. 1962)

Argued February 20, 1962
Decided March 6, 1962

Eugen Hirsch, pro se.

Edward J. Reilly, Jr., New York City (Milbank, Tweed, Hope & Hadley), New York City, for defendant-appellee.

Before MOORE, FRIENDLY and MARSHALL, Circuit Judges.


After reversal of a dismissal on motion because of an earlier settlement agreement which plaintiff challenged as obtained by misrepresentation, 258 F.2d 44 (2 Cir. 1958), a mistrial, and reversal of a direction of a defendant's verdict, 288 F.2d 685 (2 Cir. 1961), all in proceedings before other judges below, plaintiff has now had the jury determination to which we have twice held him to be entitled. The jury found that his challenge to the settlement was unfounded. Plaintiff, who acted pro se, offered no objection to the charge, and we find no error in the conduct of the trial. Plaintiff's attacks upon the integrity of the court reporters and others are incredible and ought not have been made.
