FIGHTS INCOMPETENCY FIAT
State Hospital Inmate Would Reopen Sheriff's Jury Case
Charles S. BECKTOLD appeared before Justice SAWYER in Supreme Court yesterday
with a motion in behalf of Christian A. HEMPEL to reopen a sheriff's jury proceeding
in which HEMPEL was found incompetent to manage his property. The proceeding
was begun by HEMPEL'S daughter after he had been in the Rochester State Hospital
several months and was fought hard by him. Physicians and neighbors of HEMPEL
testified for and against him before Charles M. WILLIAMS as commissioner.
Mr. BECKTOLD based his motion on alleged misconduct of a member of the sheriff's jury during the hearing. He had ten affidavits, including those of physicians, that the juror showed unfitness for service. The Court adjourned the argument until Thursday to give Arthur WARREN, attorney for Miss HEMPEL, opportunity to file answering affidavits. On the day new affidavits will be offered by HEMPEL'S counsel, to the effect that the juror appeared mentally weak from advanced age.
Members of sheriff's juries, who are taken at random from available citizens by deputies, receive 25 cents a day for their services. In the HEMPEL case the attorneys stipulated that they should receive the regular juror's compensation, $3 a day.
