Plaintiff brought suit on an accident insurance policy. He alleged that the defendant insurer wholly repudiated the policy and informed plaintiff that it would not in any event pay him the monthly indemnity according to the terms of the policy even though a doctor of its own choice advised that the plaintiff was permanently disabled. Held, that under the Texas law, when one who is obligated by contract to make money payments to another absolutely repudiates and abandons the obligation without just excuse, the obligee is entitled to maintain his action in damages at once for the entire breach. Williams v. Mutual Benefit Health & Accident Assn., (C. C. A. 5th, 1938) 100 F. (2d) 264.
