Fairbairn v. North Atlantic & Gulf Steamship Co.

decided: January 25, 1955.

IRENE L. FAIRBAIRN, AS ADMINISTRATRIX OF THE GOODS, CHATTELS AND CREDITS OF ROBERT L. FAIRBAIRN, DECEASED, PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT,
v.
NORTH ATLANTIC & GULF STEAMSHIP COMPANY, DEFENDANT-APPELLEE.



Before CLARK, Chief Judge, and FRANK and HINCKS, Circuit Judges.

Per Curiam.

Here the trial judges have shown assiduity to protect the plaintiff's legitimate interests when inexcusably neglected by the lawyer of her own choosing; but there comes a time when the court must refuse further continuances out of respect for its own dignity and the need to get judicial business done. Nor is there anything to show that the ensuing trial was unfair or the result improper.

Judgment affirmed.
