Widow Loses Court Fight To recover Insurance
A directed verdict of no cause action Thursday ended the suit of Mrs. Laura Wood to recover $1,500 indemnity from the Beneficial Life insurance company for the death of her husband, John Andrew Wood.
The defense contended Mr. Wood, who died June 19, 1932, had allowed the policy to lapse through nonpayment of premium. The company declared payments were due April 3 of that year and that the policy lapsed May 3 for nonpayment. Trial was conducted before Judge Oscar W. McConkie.
