Declaratory Judgments and Insurance Litigation, 34 Illinois Law Review, 245 (1939)
The passage of the Federal Declaratory Judgments Act in 1934 has stimulated throughout the country the employment of the action for declaratory judgment In few branches of commercial activity has it been used more successfully than in insurance litigation. It would be hard to say whether this new device for the construction of written instruments and the clarification and adjudication of all types of legal relations has been more effectively used for the determination of disputed status, the construction of contracts, conflicting claims to property, or administrative law disputes between the Government and the citizen.
