VICTORY FOR AUTO OWNER.

The New York Times
December 30, 1922


Insurance Companies Must Pay for Wear and Tear by Thieves.

Owners of automobiles are entitled to renumeration from insurance companies for wear and tear upon automobiles while the cars are in the hands of thieves, under a decision handed down by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in Brooklyn yesterday.

Mrs. Loretta J. Edwards of Hempstead, L. I., obtained a judgement of $1,196 from a jury before Supreme Court Justice Dike in Brooklyn recently against the Maryland Motor Car Insurance Company.  Mrs. Edwards owned an automobile which was stolen and driven 2,500 miles before she recovered it.

The court set aside the verdict of $1,196 in favor of Mrs. Edwards, however, on the ground that hearsay evidence regarding repairs to her car had been admitted at trial.
