Notes / Description: 

Widby sued American Insurance for $1250.00 plus interest. Widby was the widow of Basil T. Widby, dec. who was killed in an accident with a Mack truck. American Insurance claims that the life insurance policy issued to Widby was in fact issued after he was killed rather than before. Therefore, American Insurance decided that Widby was not due payment.
