Great Lawyer Story

Recommended Posts

THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR, DECADE AND

PROBABLY THE CENTURY.

Charlotte, North Carolina.

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

then

insured them against, among other things, fire.

Within a month, having smoked his ent ire 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 pol icy from the company, which it had warranted that the

cigars

were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them

against

&n bsp;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.
