    THIS IS THE BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR, DECADE AND PROBABLY THE

    CENTURY.

     

    A Charlotte, NC lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars,

    then insured them against fire, among other things. 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 claim

    against the insurance company.

     

    In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost in quote; a series of

    small fires, quote; 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.)

     

    In 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 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 rare cigars lost in the quote; 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.

    Ah yes well The Clash were, are and will always be my No.1 Band. Django is a god because of the way he could play with only half the fingers of his fretting hand in working order. Good to see you have a good taste in music. I will deffo check out this Ozzy Trio.

     

    Cheers
