A BIT MORE
1. If the claimant was running after the witness and he said, "Why are you running after me? I swear I don't know any testimony," he is not Chayav a Korban since he was not asked to testify.

3. If, upon his arrival in Beis Din, he denies knowing any testimony, he is Chayav a Korban for each Shevu'ah that he made outside of Beis Din.
4. Rebbi Shimon explains that once he denies in front of Beis Din that he knows any testimony, he no longer is accepted as a witness for this testimony. Since he is no longer an acceptable witness, he is not Chayav for any subsequent Shevu'os.
5. If one of the witnesses denies knowing testimony and the other witness acknowledges that he is aware of the testimony, the one who denies is Chayav and the other is exempt.
6. The Tana Kama maintains that since the testimony of one witness is not accepted in Beis Din, he is exempt from a Korban. Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon maintains that since his testimony is sufficient to obligate the person to swear he is Chayav a Korban. His failure to testify likely caused a loss of money as most people do not swear falsely.
7. The Torah gives credence to the testimony of one witness regarding the Z'nus of a Sotah after Kinuy and Setirah. Therefore, he is Chayav a Korban.

11. Even though he should be believed with a Migu that he could have denied grabbing it, since one witness testified that he grabbed it he is obligated to swear that he did not grab it. He cannot make that Shevu'ah because he admits that he grabbed it, and therefore he must pay.
12. One witness is believed to testify that a husband died in order to allow the woman to remarry and collect her Kesuvah. Nevertheless, sometimes he is not Chayav a Korban, such as in a case where he informed her that her husband had died and she could have gone to Beis Din herself and testified and she would have been believed.
13. Even though he originally denied knowing the testimony and now he admits to knowing it, he may retract within Kedei Dibur.
