Britt of Hot Springs, Pros. Atty. Terry Poynter of Mountain Home said Monday night that a U.S. Supreme Court decision concerning Ihe criminal libel case of Joseph H. Weslon of Cave City had put "the ball back in our court." He said Circuit Court Judge Conlractor Files Counter Suit Against Laman LITTLE .ROCK (AP) - A Lafayette, La., contractor filed a $17,100 counter suit Monday here against former North Little Rock Mayor William F. "Casey" Laman alleging that Laman and a North Little Rock bank schemed to deprive him of his legal equity interest in a $35,000 bulldozer. Laman filed suit June 19 in Pulaski County Circuit Court against William Lagnion alleging that Lagnion had defaulted in renlal paymenls on the bulldozer which he leased in October 1973. Laman also charged t h a t Lagnion owed him $7,000. Laman's suit said thai Lag- nion was to pay $5,000 down and $2,000 monthly in an 18-month lease-purchase contracl. Lag- nion made paymente for October through January but has defaulted since then, Laman's suit said. Lagnion alleged, however, that Laman did not own the equipment that was the subjeel of the lease contract and lhat ii belonged to Twin City Bank. Laman was obligated to make monthly payments to Ihi bank, but Laman allegedly be came in default and the bank demanded immediate posses sion of the equipment, Lag nion's suit said. Lagnion said he paid the Feb ruary payment to Ihe bank anc by agreement with the bank ex ercised his option to purchas the bulldozer from the bank to the $26,500 balance owed by La man. Lagnion alleged that he had a boni fide purchase offer for th vehicle for $27,800 but the ban] and Laman found a purchase for the bulldozer who paid higher price. He charged tha Laman and the bank thei schemed to unlawfully and im properly deprive Lagnion of hi interest in the bulldozer. 'ho presided in the Weston ase, musl set the trial date. Poynter planned to contact iritt about the case this week. The U.S. Supreme .Court leared the way for the crimi- al libel trial of Weston Monay when it rejected his appeal hallenging the validity of Ar- .ansas' criminal libel law. Weston vowed Monday that, f tried and convicted, lie would ppeat all the way to the U.S. lupreme Court, if necessary. Western, 62, publishes the con- roversial Sharp Citizen, a veekly newspaper specializing a revealing alleged misconduct if public .officials. He nnsiic- cssfully sought the Republican lomination for governor this fear. Over the objections of Justice Villiam Douglas, the U.S. Su- ireme Court dismissed West- n's appeal for lack of jurisdic- ion. Presumably, Weston again ;ould challenge the law if he is ound guilty. Weston was charged in 1972 vith criminal libel for an editorial that accused two opponents of his newspaper of being illiterate and one of them of being moonshiner. The trial court dismissed Ihe charge on the ground that the aw was too vague. The Arkansas Supreme Court said the lower court had moved oo quickly. It sent the case back for a determination of such questions as whether mal- was involved in the editorial. That question could bear on the issue of libel. Weston said he had expected the possibility of having to appeal once more to the U.S. Supreme Court for "the very reason of lack of juris idiction" should he be convicted when tried. But, he added, "We had to take this chance with (he Su preme Court because if we hac not done so, on any further ap peal to them, they could have said we had neglected this present opportunity to appeal." He said the U.S. Supreme Court had not ruled agains him in its decision Monday. "They have not declared the criminal libel law is con slitulional," he said. "It's merely a technical mailer o appealing an actual conviction instead of an opinion by the cir cuit judge that it was uncon stitufional. If I am convicted, i certainly will be appealed tc Ihe United States Supreme Court." Minnow BUCKETS Reg. Girls' SHORTS DEDUCTED REGISTER! OPEN 9 A.M. TO 6 P.M.
