    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, 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!

    BIG Butt....

    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".


    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.

    Sometimes, somewhere, in some cases- justice prevails.
