The South Dakota Supreme Court says an Aberdeen doctor cannot make an insurance company protect him against a lawsuit alleging he stole another man's wife.
David Kalt had sued Dr. Thomas Harbert for alienation of affections after Kalt's wife, Peggy, went to work at a medical clinic and had an affair with Harbert.
Harbert sought to have State Farm Fire and Casualty Company cover him under his personal liability insurance policy.
But the Supreme Court says the insurance policy does not cover the lawsuit because alienation of affections is an intentional harm and allowing insurance coverage is contrary to public policy.
