For over twenty years, defendant insurer accepted premiums on a life insurance policy issued to plaintiff. Defendant then discovered that a clerical error had been made in the original policy, as a result of which plaintiff's premium payments were approximately one-half the premiums defendant normally received for the type of policy actually issued. Defendant asked for reformation of the policy on the ground of mistake, and the trial court granted the relief sought. On appeal, held, reversed. The action was barred by the incontestable clause. Richardson v. Travelers Insurance Co., (App. 9th, 1948) 171 F. (2d) 699.
