Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. v. Soto
After a life insurer paid benefits to a decedent's spouse on the presumption that the policy did not contain a beneficiary form, but later discovery revealed the decedent had filed a form designating a different beneficiary, the insurer sought to recover the payment from the spouse, who then settled with the designated beneficiary, but the settlement did not render the insurer's claw-back claims moot to support dismissal.
