(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 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 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 "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 1st place winner in a
Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.

ONLY IN AMERICA!!  NO WONDER THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES THINK WE'RE


NUTS!!
