Hulcher of Virden against Archer - Daniels - Midland Co., a corporation of Minne sola and Lee Boland. The action was taken for alleged wrongful attachment of property belonging to the plaintiff. According to the biii a writ of attachment was issued out of Macoupin County Circuit Court on Aug. 10, 1959 but on July 26, 1960 the court determined that the plaintiff was not indebted to the defendant and no cause existed or the issuance of the writ and the attachment was to be discharged but the property was not •eturned to the plaintiff's possession because the corporation appealed to the Third District Ap- >ellate Court. The Appellate Court is said to have decided in favor of Hulcher on Sept. 6, 1961 but the corpora- ion then made an appeal to the Supreme Court shortly thereaf- er. The petition for leave to appeal was denied on Jan. 22, 1962, he bill further stated. As a result Hulcher claims he ras wrongfully denied the use of lis property from Aug. 11, 1959 Jan. 22, 1962, that he was en- aged in farming and business ac- ivities and the attachment derived him of the use of his prop- rty for the purpose of obtaining redit and other business activi- es, thereby suffering consider- ble damage in business enter- rise and business negotiations nd further deprived him of the ale of the portion of land and im- rovements thereon. He also charged that by virtue f the publicity and publication of vrit his business, professional and personal reputation was dam- iged and he was forced to spend pwards of $50,000 as direct re- ult of the wrongful attachment .nd he had to spend large sums f money for defense of the at- achment and suit and for costs, ees and expenses expended. Boland is listed as a surety of a bond executed and approved in he Circuit Court with the corporation as principal of the bond. Sumner Man Wins State Plowing Title VANDALIA, 111.
