A mystery for sleuths

A scholar and an illterate farmer were arguing about a maid. Both claimed that the maid belonged to them. The judge asked the maid to fill up an ink bottle and she did it very fast. Another man who was the farmer's best friend also claim that the maid belonged him. So, who does the maid belong to?

Hint: use logical reasoning
Hint 2 : Someone is being sent there to complicate the matter.
When the correct answer is being revealed, I will tell you why the person is being sent there. You can think of the reason too.

The maid belongs to the scholar because the farmer is an illiterate farmer and the farmer's best friend (is the one sent there to complicate the matter) who is also illiterate, so most probably these 2 farmers doesn't use things related to an ink bottle.

^_^ Am I correct?

Yes, you are right, amazing job. Now, the farmer's friend is being sent there so that the judge can see the logic of 'two against one".
Solving a case is based on evidence and not the number of "protesters". It does't mean that more people against someone will win the case.
