By thia appeal the dof^asaata, M, G, Juyiy, Inc., a oorpor»-

oourt ol* Chicago for $175, entered i^g^iiiet tjaeu o» a finding of tlie
oourt iE faTor of the Finance Uredit Co rpo ration, whioii Interrened
irt the eauae,

October 20, 1932, Q. R. High, ty his attoMQey, Joha Martin,
brought &n action against H. 0. Xydy, Ine. , a cox^oratioB, end
R, L. Hughes, to reooYer Amiisi^en claimed to have l&een sustained
by faim through the neglij^^eaee of the defendaiits in doiriaging plain-
tiff's »utom3bile. The daaiages were laid in tiie suih of $1C00.

Oetofeer 23, 19 32, the def€!ndantB, by their attorney,

that ne disposition should be made of the ease without the consent
and approval of iiaufman, M^ay 3, 1934, defendants filed an amended
affidavit of merits in which they again denied liability and
averred that plaintiff should not further maintain his aetion be-
eause he had executed a release whereby he released «nd forever

in the automoMle l»aiik.la,g business; that April 6, 1932, it loaned
money to High, wtio executed a diattel mortg^e on the automoljile
vhleh wae (3&tsag«4 hy defeudants «nd was the baeie of the Buit, &aA
that there was a "balarjoe «1ue from Hl^ on aeeount of tiie money
leaned to him. It waa further averred th©,t about July 1, 19:5? ,
the automol5il# in ouestion w%e wrecked while on the psirklng
premises belonging to defendant I.ydy: that afterward filgh defaulted
in the payr?ients ilue as proTi^ed in the chattel mortgage; that after
default the Finanee company learned of the daiaage to th* automo-
bile and the paadeney of the suit in the Hunlei-pal court, and May
3, 1933, it (Sitei'Sd into an agreement with High whereby he conveyed
to it •one-half interest in his claim and cause of action," and
that High and the |>etition«r entered into the stipulation above
mentioned*

!Ehe petition furtlaer act ttp thAt on May 8, 19 33, the cause
esffie on for h«?aring i« the Municipal eourt; that Eaufisan, eounsel
for the petitioner, app feared b=?fore the court and advisel the court
of petitioner's interest in the suit and of the agreemerit entered
lato betwe«» High »n6. the petitioner, as above stated; that at that
time all the parties were represented before the court, ?and the
prayer was that leave be givwi the 39 et it loner to intervene. An
order was entered accordingly. May 9th the cause was heard before
the oourt without a lury and there was a finding in favor of the
iat^arvenor, J*inance Credit Ccrporation, for |175 against the de-
fendants; .lUflgjaent was watered on the finding, and the defendants
appeal,

The record discloses that plaintiff. High, entered into a
written agreement with the finance Credit Corporation, the inter-

of the ca.a« in the Municipal eourt; that plaintiff** elalut In that
ease waa for the recovery ef the value ef the aatonuehlle, and that
High had aRel^::n«»(l ^on^^half interest in hie eltftim sm4 cause ef
aetloa* to the interrenor,

lEhe ervidenee further shows that plaintiff. High, en June
6, 1933, in Gonei deration ef #350 paid to him by hydy and iiughes,
exeetited a general release releasing defendants from all claims
"from tiie hegiiining of the world to tlie dat«» hereef * and partleu-
larly all olaims and ^m>&g^» to the automobile in question which
plaintiff had |>arlced in one of defendants' i^arking lets. The re*
least referred partleularly to the Munlelpal court case.

The Vinanee Credit Corporation, the interrenor, contends
that judigaant for |17g in Its favor is right and ^ould be affirraeA
for the reason that hefore defendants obtained ^e release from
l^lalntiff, in con»i<lerati©n of |3S0, they were advised of plain-
tiff's assignment to it of one-half of plaintiff's Interest in the
euit.

There is no evidence that defendants sss^tf^d to the assign-
ment snd obviously plaintiff and def endant^had a ri^ht to settle
their diff erenees if they chose to do ao, without noticing the
assifgoment te the interverior, leaves v. Q, B. & Q., E. M. Co.^ 200
111. App, 380, By the assig?iM«Dt the intervenor did not obtain
any lien on the olaim made by plaintiff in tJ-ie suit sueh as is
provided by the Attorney's Lien Act (par, 13, chap. 13, Cahill's
1933 Statutes.)

Moreover, there was no evidence offered on the trial to
prove that Plaintiff had a eaase of action against the defendants.
He had alleged faets setting up a legal claiiB on the ground of
defendants' negligenee, but defendants had d«^ied. all negligcsice.
The fact that defendants had paid plaintiff #350 for a release does
net neeessarily prove that if the case were tried plaintiff would

It is clear that botn parties intended that a written eea*

tract tendered by defendant for perhaps a Justifiable reason, na: ely,
that it called lor an increased cost of construction. The parties

claim is based upon the alleged breach of a contract arid ensuing
daisages in his lost profits. If the parties could net agree en the
