- Thomas W. Warner Jr., son of millionaire automobile parts manufacturing magnate Thomas W. Warner Sr., pictured on the stand. Warner Jr. had brought a suit against Pearl Antibus, a private investigator, whom he had hired to determine if his fiancee, Jean MacDonald, loved him for himself or was only interested in his fortune. Antibus investigated by placing a dictaphone in MacDonald's home. The sum total of her services came to $2500, $1500 of which was still owed to her. Warner disputed the amount, which he asserted he had never agreed to, and thus brought suit against Antibus. Superior Judge Stutsman ruled on April 14 that, as Antibus had successfully completed her services and determined that Warner's fiancee did love him, she thus was owed the full amount. He further opined that, after viewing Jean MacDonald on the stand, that "she is well worth that $1500 and more."
