BEST LAWYER/INSURANCE STORY OF THE YEAR,
DECADE, AND POSSIBLY THE CENTURY.

This took place in Charlotte North
Carolina . A lawyer purchased a box of very rare
and expensive cigars, then 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!
(Stay with me.)

Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed
with the insurance company that the claim was
frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that
the lawyer held a policy from the company, in which it had
warranted that the cigars were insurable and
also guaranteed that it would insure them against
fire, without defining what is considered to be
unacceptable 'fire' and 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. :lol:

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

I've heard that a man collapsed in America and was ressucitated by a passer by; saving his life, but sued the guy for breaking one of his ribs in the process.

sorry man, it was in the paper a few year's ago but can't find anything online about it, mainly coz i can't remember who the actress was

the words "actress horse fucked hard" come up with some undesirable results :rinsed:

The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency, and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape.

It's a funny story but is it actually true tho?

If he has unlawfully burn the insured goods then they never would have paid out in the first place.. they would have just used that as there defence in court and he never would have won the case.

Wow!!
The story you posted is great!!
Both the parties,lawyer and the cigar company were too witty to get caught hold in the case alone!!
Both used their mind and both sued each other ,but in a different fashion!
This story was worth to win the first prize!!:)
