LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR
« on: March 20, 2014, 06:39:05 PM »
I don't know if this story is true, hope it is.  Lawyers (the sons-of-dogs), after they go to law school, then become lawyers, and learn how to work the system, and lie, then they are ready to move into politics.  CUSTARDS
 



IS OUR LEGAL SYSTEM CRAZY ????

This  took place in Charlotte , North Carolina .

A  lawyer purchased a box of 24 of very rare and Expensive cigars and
insured them against, among other things, fire.

Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars,
the    lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his  claim,
the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small  Fires’.

The  insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the
man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued - and WON!

(this gets good...)

Delivering  the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that
the claim  was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, the lawyer held a
policy from the company, in which it had warranted the cigars insurable
and guaranteed it would insure them against fire.

Without defining what is considered to be unacceptable 'fire', so was
obligated to pay the claim.

Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance
company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the Lawyer for his loss of
the cigars that perished in the 'fires'.

NOW  FOR THE BEST PART...

After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested
on 24 counts of ARSON!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from
the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of
intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months
in jail and a $24,000 fine.

This true story won First Place in last year's Criminal Lawyers Award
contest.

ONLY IN AMERICA .......

True or not, that was Great! I know a few lawyers and ex-lawyers I wouldn't mind seeing on the other side of justice.

I would like to quote you, but I don't see the option.
Does this mean that I can only use the "B" word when I refer to terrorists?  ;D

Look to the upper right of the post, you should see a quote button. If not, I will get IT on it.

Though I have plenty to say about terrorists, it will have to remain off the public forum.

The restricted social forums is where things of that nature and caliber can be discussed. I will add you to the group membership.
