Where an insurer challenged a judgment against it in a title insurance policy dispute that included claims of vexatious refusal and breach of contract, the trial court did not err in refusing to submit the insurer’s request for an instruction for a statute-of-limitations defense, and the insurer did not show that alleged insufficiencies in appraisers’ testimony made the testimony inadmissible since the issue went to the weight to be given the testimony.
Judgment is affirmed.
