The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled in the case of the “Beanie Baby” blaze in DeWitt. The Supreme Court justice who wrote the opinion starts out by saying “a battalion of Beanie Babies has marched a legal question before us.” That question: whether Ramona Sager could collect insurance on her DeWitt home that was nearly burnt down after her husband went “on a quest to torch” Ramona’s Beanie Baby collection. Ramona had just told him she wanted their marriage to end. Farm Bureau denied Ramona’s insurance claim because the fire that caused 100-thousand dollars damage was intentionally set. The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled Ramona could get some insurance payment because she didn’t start the fire, but a lower court must determine whether Ramona overstated how many household goods were damaged in the fire. If she lied on that, Farm Bureau can deny her claim.
