News of the Courts

William Law, living 35 miles southeast of Colorado Springs, has been arrested by the sheriff's office on a charge of nonsupport and will be tried before Justice O. R. Dunnington Thursday morning. Law was brought to this city by Sheriff Birdsall and has been released on bond. His family consists of a wife and two children.

NOTE: The reference to "two" children appeares to have been an error, as clarified in the second article below.

Colorado Springs Gazette, Friday, 19 JUN 1914, page 9:

News of the Courts

Justice Dunnington yesterday morning found William E. Law, who was arrested at a ranch 35 miles southeast of Colorado Springs last Saturday, guilty of nonsupport. Later in the day Law’s wife, Florence M. Law, filed an answer and a cross complaint to her husband’s suit for divorce in the district court, and Law filed a replication to the cross complaint of his wife.

In the proceedings before Justice Dunnington, Law was put under bond to pay $15 a month into court for the support of his wife and child. The bond was furnished by his parents. Mrs. Law told officers of Justice Dunnington’s court yesterday morning that she was married once before – to a man name McCutcheon – when she was only 15 years old. She was divorced from him, she said. Her parents live somewhere in Texas, but she does not know where, as no letters have passed between them for some time.

In the answer and cross complaint which she filed in the district court, Mrs. Law denied all the allegations of cruelty made in the complaint filed by her husband, alleged cruelty on his part, asked for a divorce and for the custody of their 2-year old son, and asked that permanent alimony be awarded her. Law, in his replication, denied the allegations of cruelty made in his wife’s complaint.

The Laws were married June 26, 1911.
