Federal Court rejects effort to rescind policy

In Federated Life Insurance Company v. Jafreh, the life insurance company attempted to rescind a policy over six years after it was issued. The insurance company claimed the insured had misrepresented his health status in the policy application.  Both the District Judge in Houston and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected this effort and found the insurance company liable for the benefits along with 18% penalty interest.
