INSURANCE AGREEMENTS. f
ISupreme Court Holds Alabama Law-'o
Be Constitutional andi So Orders.
The law of Alabama, passed in 1897,
to prevent agreements and combina
tions between insurance companies
Sfor the purpose of fixing rates of fire
~.insurance, has been held to be consti
tutional by the supreme court of the
The act provided that every policy of
fire Insurance should be Interpreted in
event of loss thereunder, to in'clude a
- 25 per cent penalty if the insurance
. company, either at the same time the
policy was issued or before the tizne of
trial, was a member of the tariff asso
E ciation for fixing the rate of insurance.
The Invalidity of the law arose in a
suit of Foster K. Hale, Jr., against the
German Alliance Insurance company,
Iof New York, to recover $4,000 insur
ance for the loss by fire of lumber at
Byrne's Mill Pond, Baldwin county,
Alabama, and for $1,000 penalty under
the act of 1897. It was claimed that
the insurance company made a settle
ment by the Southeastern Tariff asso
ciation, which fixed rates for insur
ance. The federal court of Alabama.
upheld the constitutionality of the law.
From this judgment an appeal was
taken to the superior court which af
firmed that holding.
