WINS SUIT AGAINST ISMAN.

The New York Times
April 30, 1914


$7,500 Verdict for Widow of Bluecoat, Killed by Realty Man's Car.

Mrs. Ellen Fitzsimmons got a verdict of $7,500 yesterday in Justice Lehman's part of the Supreme Court against Felix Isman, the real estate dealer, whose motor car killed Mrs. Fitzsimmons's husband, Policeman Peter Fitzsimmons, on Nov. 1, 1912. James M. Donohue, counsel for the plaintiff, said that the car was driven recklessly by the chauffeur.  Mr. Isman was not in the car at the time the accident occurred.  It was Mr. Isman's habit, Mr. Donohue explained, to place his car at the disposal of motor cycle policemen.  On the night of the accident the car had been used by several bluecoats, and it was being driven back to the garage when Fitzsimmons was struck.

The chauffeur went on and said nothing about the accident.  It was nearly three months afterward before the ownership of the car was traced.  The chauffeur had disappeared in the meantime.
