      Held at the Maine Historical Society: “Report of the Trial of an Action; Charles Lowell against John Faxon and Micajah Hawks, defendants, for Malpractice in the capacity of Physicians and Surgeons, at the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine Holden at Machias for the County of Washington--June Term, 1824, before the Hon. Nathan Weston, Jun. Justice of the Court. Portland: Printed for James Adams, Jr., by David and Seth Paine, 1825. Partial summary from the “Report of the Case”: “Charles Lowell, the Plaintiff, declared against John Faxon and Micajah Hawks, the Defendants, as having been engaged and employed by him in the capacity of Physicians and Surgeons, to reduce his left hip joint, which had been disloacted on the 7th September, 1821; and alledged that they undertook to do it; but proceeded so carelessly and managed with such ignorance, unskilfulness and negligence that they failed to reduce, and the plaintiff thereby lost the use of, the limb, with other injuries, and laying the damages ten thousand dollars.--The defendants pleaded severally not guilty.
      Mutual challenges were made on both sides to the jurors, as they were called, on account of favour or prejudice; in consequence of which several were excluded, among whom were all the jurors summoned from Eastport, the place of Doct. Hawks’ resiidence, who were objected to by the plaintiff’s counsel. Some time was consumed in canvassing these objections, until a jury was finally empannelled and the trial proceeded. It occupied the two succeeding days and terminated on Thursday, by the disagreement of the jury, and the dismissal of the action by the advice of court and consent of parties. ... Mr. Greenleaf for the Plaintiff opened the case to the jury. On the 7th of November, Mr. Lowell was riding a young and restive horsese, which suddenly reared and fell. He was flung on his back and fell upon his left side. The horse fell upon him with his weight inside of the left thigh and occasioned a dislocation of the left hip.” [The trial alleged malpractice in treating the dislocation] [1]
