Stillman was reaffirmed by the State Supreme Court in a list of decisions by the state's high tribunal made public last week. The case was that of the Iowa Home Mutual Casualty Co. vs. Farmers Mutual Hail Ins. Co. ond others. The verdict refused to declare the defendant company, issuer of policy on the owner of car in which the owner's son was killed, proportionately liable with the plaintiff company which had issued a non-owner policy to the son.. The decision was affirmed. Linnan & Lynch represented the plaintiff in the original action in the local court. The action was a contest between two insurance companies over liability in connection with the Beiser-Brueh fatal motor accident of sometime ago south of Algona.
