Best Lawyer Story Ever.

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 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'.


After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 2
4 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.
