The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company issued a group insurance policy in the sum of $500 upon the life of appellant's husband. The husband paid all the premiums and designated a niece, appellee, the beneficiary therein. Several years prior to the issuance of the policy appellant had ceased to live with the insured, although a divorce had never been obtained. Appellant contested the recovery of the proceeds by appellee on the ground that said niece had no insurable interest in the life of insured. Held, judgment of the trial court awarding proceeds to appellee affirmed, on the ground that appellee had established an insurable interest by providing insured a home in his old age. Smith v. Metropolitan Life Ins. Co., (Tex. Civ. App. 1939) 123 S. W. (2d) 956.
