    Gotta love those lawyers

    Post by Willows on Sat Apr 09, 2011 9:03 pm

    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

    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'.


    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.
