Died suddenly

Lloyd’s Sunday News (London) of Oct. 14, 1923 relates the case of John Blackman, a well-known labor leader of Eastbourne, Sussex, England. In April 1922, Blackman was committed to prison for arrears due to his wife. The judge who committed him died suddenly. When the man was released, he still refused to pay, and was sent back to prison. That judge “died suddenly.” Twice more he refused to pay and was re-committed. Both times the judge “died suddenly.”
