    BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR,

     

    DECADE AND PROBABLY THECENTURY!!

     

    Charlotte, North Carolina. USA.

     

    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 and without yet having made even

    his first premium payment on the policy 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, 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 lost

    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 is a true story and was the First Place winner in

    the recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest!
