Plaintiff claimed breach of contract and negligence arising out of Defendant's failure to pay on a $500,000 life insurance policy issued to Plaintiff's husband.
Employee-wife was entitled to participate in company's group life insurance program. Husband was designated as 100% beneficiary of the policy. While she was dying of cancer, a change of beneficiary form was executed under suspicious circumstances. Insurance company made an attempt to determine the validity of the change, but was unable to do so.
Plaintiff claimed he should have received the proceeds of an insurance policy after the owner of the policy changed the beneficiary under suspicious circumstances.
