ILLINOIS APPELLATE COURT FIRST DISTRICT, SECOND DIVISION.
NOVEMBER 7, 1962.
EDWARD R. WUERTTEMBERGER, PLAINTIFF-APPELLEE,
CONTINENTAL CASUALTY COMPANY, AN ILLINOIS CORPORATION, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from the Superior Court of Cook County; the Hon. HARRY
G. HERSHENSON, Judge, presiding. Judgment affirmed.
MR. JUSTICE FRIEND DELIVERED THE OPINION OF THE COURT:
This case comes up for the second time on appeal. The facts are fully set forth in our opinion, filed October 24, 1961 and reported in 32 Ill. App.2d 430, 178 N.E.2d 136.
Following reversal of the order dismissing Count 1, the case was tried and resulted in a finding that plaintiff incurred expenses of $1,528.90 for various items specified in the policy during 90 days of hospitalization attributable to his leg condition and the additional sum of $239.20 for similar charges during the ten days of hospitalization on account of his prostate condition. Judgment was thereupon entered for $1,604.14, from which defendant appeals.
Upon reconsideration of the provisions of the policy, we adopt the interpretation expressed in our former opinion. The trial court's application of the proof adduced in the trial of the case to that interpretation was proper.
The judgment of the Superior Court is therefore affirmed.
BRYANT, P.J., concurs.
BURKE, J., dissenting:
BURKE, J., dissents for the reasons expressed in the previous dissenting opinion and because the majority opinion makes a new contract for the parties. See 32 Ill. App.2d 430, 435, 178 N.E.2d 136.
