In the U. S. Circuit Court, Lincoln & Logan represent the Morgan County Bank in the case of Gale v. Morgan County Bank. The plaintiff Dewitt C. Gale asks the court to grant him a new trial. Gale is suing the bank for $10,000 in damages. He claims that the bank failed to credit his account with deposits he made totaling $4,000. On January 16, a jury found for the bank. Judge Samuel H. Treat advises the parties that he does not have sufficient information to rule on the request for a new trial, and that he will take "time to consider" the motion. Judge Treat then adjourns the court until the next morning. Order, 8 February 1858, Gale v. Morgan County Bank, Record Group 21, General Records, Vol. 1, 297; Narratio, filed 30 May 1857, Gale v.
