Insurance Suit Ruling Upheld The State Supreme Court Tuesday affirmed a decision of Circuit Judge Norris Maloney of Dane County denying the Safeguard Insurance Co. 4 a summary judge(ment against the Farmers Automobile Isnurance Co. The issue revolved around whether James Gage, Madison, was the owner of a car he bought from the Buick Co. of Stoughton at the time he got into an accident with Donald Engen, Madison, on April 13, 1958. The Safeguard firm maintained Gage was the owner of the car, while Farmers Mutual maintained ownership had not as yet been transferred to Gage.

The high court held there were substantial issues of fact to be decided and Maloney was right in refusing to dismiss the case. Manager Convo Hyman B. Parks, manager of the Madison agency, is attending the manager's national conference in Washington D. C. of the Prudential Insurance which is in the midst of a special effort in observation of its 85th anniversary.
