Jose Rivera Soler & Co. v. Insurance Co., 299 U.S. 45 (1936)
Jose Rivera Soler & Co. v. United Firemen's
Insurance Company of Philadelphia
Argued October 20, 1936
Decided November 9, 1936
299 U.S. 45
The mere facts that the amount claimed in a proof of loss under a fire insurance policy greatly exceeded the amount allowed by the jury in the trial of the case, and that one of the items claimed was not supported by any evidence, do not give rise to a conclusive presumption of fraud. P. 299 U. S. 49.
81 F.2d 385 reversed.
U.S. District Court for Puerto Rico affirmed.
Certiorari, 298 U.S. 651, to review a judgment reversing a recovery in the District Court of the United States for Puerto Rico on a policy of fire insurance. The court below had at first decided the other way. 77 F.2d 891.
