The plaintiff Insurance Company was required by the Oklahoma Workmen's Compensation Act 85 O.S.1951 1 et seq. to pay death benefits to the dependents of an employee who was killed solely as a result of the negligence of the defendant. It brought this action alleging that it was entitled to be indemnified by the defendant for the amounts paid. The trial court denied relief.
