    Ex-Ram files $100M suit against Patriots

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A lawsuit filed Friday by a former St. Louis Rams player and others seeks millions of dollars in damages from the alleged taping of Rams practices by the New England Patriots before the 2002 Super Bowl.

    This should be an interesting lawsuit.

    A team of out-of-state attorneys has filed a lawsuit seeking $100 million in damages from the Patriots [team stats] and coach Bill Belichick claiming that the team defrauded St. Louis fans and players when they allegedly taped a Rams practice before narrowly winning the 2002 Super Bowl....

    some attourneys will sue for anything


    BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR, DECADE AND PROBABLY THE CENTURY!

    A Charlotte, North Carolina 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! (Stay with me.) Delivering the ruli ng, 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 insure d 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.

    ONLY IN AMERICA!


    may not be true, but it is funny
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    That story gets a 10 because justice was actually served in the end unlike the cases like the woman who spilled McDonalds coffee on herself but the cup didn't say "caution hot".
    If there was justice in the world McDonalds could have countersued for stupidity.
