This is the best lawyer story of the year, decade and probably the


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.
