    funny lawyer story

    a friend just e-mailed this to me, got a kick out of it an thought i would share iy with you guys.

    "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 $15,000.00 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 was

    sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000.00 fine.

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

    sure hope that was a true story

    Do you know how a lawyer sleeps at night????

    First, he lies on one side and then, lies on the other side.
