In this case the injury occurred in Alabama, which is the only difference between it and the case of Weingartner v. Fidelity Mutual Insurance Company, 5 Cir., 205 F. 2d 833. Therefore, upon the authority of the latter case and the Louisiana statute therein cited, the judgment appealed from, 104 F.Supp. 230, is affirmed.
