Appellate Division, Fourth Department


Life Insurance — Oral Stipulation

Gay v. Gay
CA 13-00220
Appealed from Supreme Court, Onondaga County

Background: the plaintiff appeals from an order directing him to cooperate with the defendant regarding a life insurance policy on the plaintiff’s life and ordering both parties to name the children as beneficiaries. The plaintiff argues that neither party agreed to such imposition.

Ruling: The Appellate Division modified the order by providing that the parties’ obligation to maintain life insurance naming the children as beneficiaries ceases upon the termination of their respective child support obligations. The court noted that there was an oral stipulation placed into the record.

John A. Cirando for the plaintiff-appellant; Jon W. Brenizer of Macht, Brenizer & Gingold for the defendant-respondent
