Insurer is awarded judgment against insured after suspected arson
American Fellowship Mutual Insurance concluded that Carey and Michael Torrice's insured home burned as a result of arson. It sued to recover the amount of mortgage payments it made to the Torrices' bank. After a trial, the jury awarded the insurer a judgment worth approximately $60,000.00, including costs and fees. The Torrices appealed, arguing a number of procedural and evidentiary errors, but the verdict was upheld.
