Judge James Crawford, presid
ing in a suit brought by the re
ceiver of the defunct Empire
Holding corporation to collect a
$20,000 note from O. P. Coshow,
ex-Justice of the Oregon supreme
court, yesterday denied defense
claims of fraud and lack of con
sideration raised against payment
of the note. :'-'
The court announced It would
rule today con credits which Co
show alleges should be applied to
the note. These include v $2000
cash item paid on interest, a
$3000 commission allowance, and
salary allowances, which bring the
total offsets to $31,299.
- The court held the defense did
not present evidence to show
fraud. Judge Crawford ruled that
lack of benefit was shown but not
lack of consideration. Said the
court: "The fact that subsequent
operation of the corporation was
financially unsuccessful, in no
wise establishes a failure ot con
sideration but merely records a
disastrous business venture not re
sulting in a defense to the note
action." v- - f
