Subject: SLS: insurance is admiralty
References: <Pine.SOL.3.91.970721095647.21075B-100000@cor>

Yes, all insurance is admiralty, because the
actuarial "risk" is spread across all policy
holders, and the Supreme Court has held that
interstate insurance companies are involved
in interstate commerce, because the policy
holders are typically spread across the
several states of the Union.  I don't have
that cite right now, but Bill Medina can
supply it.  He is in Sunnyvale, California.

This is an outgrowth of the Erie Railroad
case in 1930.  Again, read "The Two United
States and the Law" in the Supreme Law Library
