ILLINOIS APPELLATE COURT FIRST DISTRICT, FOURTH DIVISION.
OCTOBER 7, 1966.
FIRST FINANCE COMPANY, PLAINTIFF-APPELLEE,
HUGH ROSS AND MARGARET M. ROSS, INDIVIDUALLY AND D/B/A TRIANGLE REFRIGERATION ENGINEERS, DEFENDANTS-APPELLANTS.
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Cook County; the Hon. GEORGE
B. WEISS, Judge, presiding. Defendants' appeal dismissed.
MR. PRESIDING JUSTICE DRUCKER DELIVERED THE OPINION OF THE COURT.
Defendants appeal from the denial of their petition for a new trial under section 72 of the Civil Practice Act (Ill Rev Stats, 1963, c 110, § 72).
After a bench trial the defendants were found to have converted plaintiff's property and judgment was entered in the amount of $12,000 plus costs. In addition, the court made a special finding that malice was the gist of the action against one of the defendants, Hugh Ross. In their petition defendants allege that the testimony of plaintiff's sole witness was perjured.
The issues presented in this appeal are moot since the aforesaid judgment was reversed by this court [First Finance Co. v. Ross, 75 Ill. App.2d 403]. Therefore the appeal is dismissed.
ENGLISH and McCORMICK, JJ., concur.
