Matney was injured by the negligence of a permissive driver of the daughter of the named insured who had a liability automobile policy with Country Mutual Insurance Company. The insurance company refused to provide any insurance coverage to the permissive driver under the theory that the named insured had gifted the automobile to the daughter and, therefore, no insurable interest vested with the policy and nothing further was owed under the terms of the policy. The insurance company filed a declaratory judgment action against the injured party, Richard Matney, and requested that the court rule that there was no coverage available for Matney. On behalf of Matney, we argued that ownership of the insured vehicle was irrelevant with respect to liability insurance coverage, when the policy holder had not canceled the insurance policy. The trial court and Western District Court of Appeals agreed and coverage was established for Matney. Judgment $100,000. Donald Martin v.
