White v. United States, 270 U.S. 175 (1926)

White v. United States

No. 177

Argued January 26, 1926

Decided March 1, 1926

270 U.S. 175


1. The Act of March 5, 1925, giving appellate jurisdiction to the circuit courts of appeals in suits for war risk insurance, including suits pending, did not apply to a case pending in this Court on appeal on the date of the Act. P. 270 U. S. 179.

2. A form of certificate of war risk insurance providing that it should be subject not only to the War Risk Insurance Act but to any future amendment thereof could be validly adopted under the Act by the Director with the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury. P. 270 U. S. 180.

3. Where a certificate was thus subject to future legislation, the beneficiary named had not such a vested right in the installments payable as will prevent letting in another beneficiary not eligible under the statute originally, but named in the soldier's will and made eligible by an amendment of the statute passed after his death. P. 270 U. S. 180.

299 F.8d 5 affirmed.

Appeal from a judgment of the district court in a suit to enforce rights claimed under a certificate of war risk insurance. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
