CASE ENTRY

Tran v. Minnesota Life Insurance Company

Over a dissent, the Seventh Circuit holds that death from autoerotic asphyxiation, even if accidental, still involves an “intentionally self-inflicted injury” that can prevent a life insurance payout. The Second and Ninth Circuits disagree. (Will the Supreme Court resolve the split? Don’t hold your breath.)
