MH Prevails in Impostor Insured Case
MH attorneys David McDowell and Jason Richardson obtained summary judgment in favor of life insurer on all claims brought by a fictitious charitable organization for insurance proceeds on the life of a non-existent person. The court found that the beneficiary of the policies utilized forged documents to misidentify an unclaimed body as that of the insured’s. The policy was rescinded, and the insurer was awarded attorneys’ fees and permitted to retain all premiums paid on the policy.
