Photograph of Myrtle St. Pierre, breach of promise plaintiff, on the back steps of the Los Angeles County Courthouse receiving a large bouquet of flowers; she is greeted by a young man and stands next to a woman (probably her sister Mildred Mccaffery). Five people are visible on the steps behind St. Pierre.
In 1932, Myrtle St. Pierre brought a breach of promise suit against David Hutton two days after his marriage to the evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson. The jury awarded her $5,000.
