Fisher Palimony Trial Details

The Fisher Palimony trial dragged on for months. This article details some of the finer points of testimony, focusing particularly on the comments of Jane Watts Fisher, who disputed rival Gertrude Hassler's claim that Carl Fisher spent the Tuesday evening prior to his marriage ceremony with her. Also, there are good insights to the Fisher's "honeymoon," where Carl took Jane on a train trip to Los Angeles so he could testify in another court case, this one brought against his Prest-O-Lite Company due to another of its damaging and notorious factory explosions. The company made compressed gas products which used brass canisters. This article was published February 2, 1913.
