    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.

    it's a good story but it's old man, it's one of the classic american sue stories

    it's up there with the McDonalds coffee in the lap and the 90s hollywood actress who sued a french farmer for damages to her reputation after he sued her because her horse jumped a fence and fucked his horse too hard maiming it in the process

    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!!:)
