Lawsuit against Tom Toney.


These documents detail a lawsuit brought against Tom Toney by Mitchell & Mitchell Automobile Repairing. The first IOU details Tom Toney's debt to I. Schiffman & Co. for a Dodge car for $60. Following the check is a bill for repairs on the Dodge totalling $28.25. Tom Toney's car was seized upon discovery it was being used to "convey spiritous or vinous liquor contrary to law", resulting in a lawsuit brought by the State of Alabama. The statement is Mitchell & Mitchell claiming that Toney never paid his auto repair bill for the lawsuit. The back of the final letter has a handwritten note that reads: "No. 683 State vs. Toney. Claim of Mitchell & Mitchell. Filed June 11/19 F. S. Cabaniss Reg."
