This case is here on appeal from the grant of a motion for summary judgment in a suit on promissory notes in which the defendants admitted that the promissory notes were delivered to the bank in blank except for signatures, dates and amounts filled in by the maker, and claimed an officer of the bank would complete the notes by writing in the due dates, "the name of the corporation, Sunshine Ford Sales, Inc.," above the signatures of the defendants. The answer of the defendants denied liability, stating it was the intention of the parties that only the corporation was to be liable, the defendants acting as agents
1. Under Code Ann. § 109A-3 — 403 (Ga. L. 1962, pp. 156, 257), if the representative does not show he "signed in a representative capacity" he is personally obligated.
2. Code Ann. § 109A-3 — 307 presumes the signature on the negotiable instrument to be genuine or authorized. In addition, the answers of the plaintiff to the defendants' interrogatories make an issue of fact in denying the claim of the defendants. Newby v. Armour Agricultural Chem. Co., 119 Ga.App. 650 (168 S.E.2d 652).
4. Material alterations avoiding the instrument have been held to be addition of (a) witnesses, one a notary public (Cook v. Parks, 46 Ga.App. 749 (169 SE 208)), since it facilitated proof of execution; (b) a co-maker (Williams v. F. S. Royster Guano Co., 67 Ga.App. 711 (21 S.E.2d 349)); (c) a seal to a sealed instrument (Hamby v. Crisp, 48 Ga.App. 418, 420 (172 SE 842)); (d) consideration where there was none (Low v. Argrove, 30 Ga. 129); and dates and payee (Winn v. Hinson, 64 Ga.App. 48 (12 S.E.2d 172)). While the above cases arose before the adoption of the Uniform Commercial Code in this State, we think basically all applicable statutes involved in the above cases which were repealed are virtually intact in the new Code. See Code Ann. § 109A-3-407.
5. Where, on consideration of a motion for summary judgment, it appears from the evidence that there remains a genuine issue as to any material fact, the moving party is not entitled to a judgment as a matter of law and the motion should be denied. Bagley v. Firestone Tire &c. Co., 104 Ga.App. 736 (123 S.E.2d 179); Holland v. Sanfax Corp., 106 Ga.App. 1 (126 S.E.2d 442); International Brotherhood v. Newman, 116 Ga.App. 590, 592 (158 S.E.2d 298); Horton v. Nichols, 117 Ga.App. 748 (162 S.E.2d 208). Accordingly,
Judgment reversed. Hall, P. J., and Deen, J., concur.
