Watkin’s Case Y.B.Hil.

3 Hen. 6, f. 36, pl. 33 (1425)


W.B. (P) sued Watkins (D) for the failure to complete a mill by Christmas. P brought a writ of trespass on the case for damages in tort amounting to 10 marks. D argued that P had failed to state a claim because the price for the construction of the mill was never declared. P asked for judgment and damages. D then claimed that P told D that the mill was no longer wanted. P denied this fact.
