The plaintiff was injured as a result of the alleged negligence of the defendant company. His attorney induced him to sign a general release, representing that it was only a receipt for seven hundred and fifty dollars paid on account by the defendant company. The plaintiff was illiterate and relied upon the fraudulent representations of his attorney. In an action to set aside the release, held, on a motion for judgment on the pleadings, that the complaint stated a cause of action, and that the plaintiff was not negligent in relying upon the representations of his attorney. Affirmed. Pimpinello v. Swift and Co., Inc. 253 N. Y. 159, 170 N.E. 530. (1930)
