Notes / Description: 

Recovery of a large, iron Diebold safe. The bigger issue: Olsen & Lesh was a construction company & claim that they were insured under the name "Olsen & Lesh," therefore, could not be sued under any other name. The defendant entered much proof that the company was called "Olsen & Lesh Construction Co." Glover argued that the company knew exactly who was being sued, no matter the misnomer. "Olsen" also spelled "Olson."
