BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR, DECADE AND PROBABLY THE CENTURY!!
>>>
>>> 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 cheque, 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!
>>>
>>> ONLY IN AMERICA!
