Hingham Mut. Fire Ins. v. McLellan Back to Opinions page MAINE SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT Reporter of Decisions Decision: 2000 ME 33 Docket: Was-99-298 Argued: December 6, 1999 Decided: February 25, 2000 Panel:WATHEN, C.J., and RUDMAN, DANA, SAUFLEY, ALEXANDER, and CALKINS, JJ.
HINGHAM MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY v. RUTH McLELLAN
PER CURIAM The Hingham Mutual Fire Insurance Company appeals a judgment entered in the Superior Court (Washington County, Kravchuk, C.J.) determining that Ruth McLellan held an insurable interest in real property at the time that a structure on the property was destroyed by fire. Hingham argues that McLellan had no legal or equitable interest in the property and, therefore, had no interest to insure. Because the Court is evenly divided on the issue presented, we affirm the judgment. The entry is: Judgment affirmed.
