In the U.S. Circuit Court, defendant Lewis W. Young confesses judgment before Judge Samuel H. Treat in the case of Taylor & Davis v. Young. Lincoln and Thomas G. C. Davis represent Young whose confession is based on an agreement that the parties file with the court. Young agrees to "confess judgment in the action for one cent damages and costs of [the] suit." Plaintiffs Charles Davis and Thomas S. Taylor had sought $5,000 in damages from Young. Davis and Thomas, who are trustees of some city property in Cairo, Illinois, claim that Young had damaged the property. In the case of S. C. Davis & Co. v. J. W. & J. R. Allen, another suit in the U.S. Circuit Court, William H. Underwood, the attorney for the defendants, files a plea.
