Campbell, Juliet, Buchanan, Oren v Prendergest, Donnette and Hall, Junior

Tortious damage to property; credibility; assessment of damages; betterment.

When the incredulity of ,the defendants is juxtaposed with the credibility of

. .the claimants, the aphorism, "truth press down is like oil poured in water, it

: rises to the top," comes into sharp focus. The court is constrained not to look

askance at the manifest truth of the claim. Accordingly, the claim is found

proved on a balance of probabilities.
