Northern Assurance Co. v. Grand View Bldg. Assn. - 203 U.S. 106 (1906)
U.S. Supreme Court
Northern Assurance Co. v. Grand View Bldg. Assn., 203 U.S. 106 (1906)
Northern Assurance Company of London
v. Grand View Building Association
Argued October 18, 19, 1906
Decided November 5, 1906
203 U.S. 106
An adjudication in an action at law on a policy of insurance that the insured cannot recover on the policy as it then stood is not an adjudication that the contract cannot be reformed, and a court of another state does not fail to give full faith and credit to such a judgment because, in an equity action, it reforms the policy and gives judgment to the insured thereon as reformed.
Whether the obligation of the contract was impaired by a statute as construed is not open in this Court if that objection was not taken below.
102 N.W. 246 affirmed.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
