Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada v. Wells Fargo Bank NA (080669) (Statewide) (A-49-17; 080394)

The Court answers both parts of the first certified question in the affirmative: a life insurance policy procured with the intent to benefit persons without an insurable interest in the life of the insured does violate the public policy of New Jersey, and such a policy is void at the outset. In response to the second question, a party may be entitled to a refund of premium payments it made on the policy, depending on the circumstances.
