The interesting thing about this case is that the sole base for $ 200 000 recovery was a simple note:

"I've got $ 200 000 from Mr. X . Date. Signature."

The allegation that it was a contract of loan was rebutted with witnesses of the counterpart. So I've changed gist of action to unjust enrichment.

The point was to prove that the money were given without a cause, that the defendant desperately tried to deny.
