Plaintiff, an administrator appointed by an Illinois probate court, brought suit in Michigan under the Indiana death act1 to recover for the wrongful death of decedent which resulted from an accident occurring in Indiana. The trial court sustained defendant's motion to dismiss on the ground that plaintiff had no standing to sue in a Michigan court. Held, reversed. The rule barring actions brought by foreign administrators does not apply to suits brought under the usual type of wrongful death act. Howard v. Pulver, (Mich. 1951) 45 N.W. (2d) 530.
