    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, the lawyer filed a law suit 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 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 fire," and was obligated to pay the claim.

    Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15, 000.00 to the lawyer for his loss of the rare 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 he was sentenced to 24 months in jail and ordered to pay a $24,000 fine.

    This is a true story and was the 1st place winner in the recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.
