Notes / Description: 

Smith took out a life insurance policy on her husband Lawrence for $500. The insurance company claims that due to his physical state at the time of filing, that payment on the policy cannot be made, that he was ill when the policy was taken out, and therefore uninsurable. Mr. Smith suffered from ulcers, a perforation of the stomach, and other digestive problems.
