(b) B sues A under the circumstances mentioned in illustration (a). On the plaint being filed, A disputes the claim Afterwards A pays the money into Court. B accepts it in full satisfaction of his claim. The Court should also give B his cast of suit. A's conduct having shown that the litigation was necessary.
