No Joke Of The Week

This actually took place in Charlotte, North Carolina.

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, 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, 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 cigars that perished in the ‘fires’.


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 true story won First Place in last year’s Criminal Lawyers Awards contest.

    Hard to feel sympathy for a lawyer.

    We really shouldn’t be bashing lawyers. After all, its only the 99% that give the rest a bad name.

    Although the story is funny, the fact is there is no truth to it. A little searching on the Internet will show you this.
