LIFE

UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT.
No. 56.–OCTOBER TERM, 1913.

NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, Plaintiff in Error,

VS.

DEER LODGE COUNTY.*

INSURANCE-INSURANCE AND COMMERCE.
Issuing a policy of insurance is not a transaction of commerce.
INSURANCE-CORPORATIONS – RIGHT TO TRANSACT BUSI-

NESS.
The right of a foreign corporation to do business in a state other than

that of its creation depends wholly upon the will of such other state.
COMMERCE–INSURANCE CONTRACT.
The business of insurance is not commerce. The contract of insurance

is not an instrumentality of commerce. The making of such con

tract is a mere incident of commercial intercourse. (For other cases, see Commerce, Cent. Dig. § 33; Dec. Dig. $ 45.) (For other definitions, see Words and Phrases, vol. 2, pp. 1287-1298; vol.

8, pp. 7606, 7607.)
