Travelers Fire Insurance Co. v. Wright
Citation:322 P.2d 417 (1958)
J.B. Wright and J.C. Wright brought an action to recover under the terms of two fire insurance policies. The defendant insurers defended on the ground that the fire that destroyed plaintiffs’ property had been deliberately caused by plaintiff J.B. Wright with the intent to defraud the defendants. Defendants called Wm. Holland Eppler and Albert Brown as witnesses. Each witness claimed his constitutional privilege against self-incrimination and refused to testify. Defendant then offered certified transcripts of testimony given by each witness in the trial of a criminal case wherein one of the plaintiffs herein, J.B. Wright, was charged with the crime of arson in connection with the fire involved in the instant case. Each offer was rejected by the trial court. The court reporter who took the evidence in the criminal case testified as to the correctness of his transcript.
