POWERS v. POWERS.
26841.
GUNTER, Justice.
Equitable petition. DeKalb Superior Court. Before Judge Peeler.
The case was tried before a jury which returned a verdict in favor of the appellee. Judgment was entered on the verdict canceling the deed.
The appellant filed a motion for a new trial on the general grounds and also filed a motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict of the jury. Both motions were overruled and denied by the trial court.
The crux of this appeal is whether the evidence presented to the jury at the trial demanded a verdict in favor of the appellant.
We have reviewed the entire record and transcript of the evidence very carefully. It is our opinion that the evidence presented a question for jury determination as to the validity or invalidity of the deed sought to be set aside by the appellee and sought to be sustained by the appellant. The jury found that the deed was invalid and returned its verdict for the appellee. The verdict has the approval of the trial judge.
Finding no error in the proceedings below, the appeal is without merit.
Harvey & Willard, Wendell K. Willard, E. C. Harvey, Jr., for appellee.
Edward D. Wheeler, Zachary & Seagraves, W. E. Zachary, Sr., for appellant.
ARGUED NOVEMBER 9, 1971 -- DECIDED FEBRUARY 11, 1972.
