Carnegie vs. Mutual Savings Life Insurance Co.
Summary of Conversation
This class action was commenced by two plaintiffs, Glenda Carnegie, and Ida Lee Johnson, who are American citizens with African ancestors. These ladies instituted suit on behalf of themselves, as well as a putative class of allegedly similarly situated persons i.e., African Americans who own or had an ownership interest in ‘colored cash’ or ‘colored burial’ policies that were issued at higher substandard rates or as substandard plans and, in addition, any policies that Mutual Savings has identified to the State of Alabama Insurance Department as being issued as race-based policies.
