Subject: INSURED CIGARS LOST "IN SERIES OF SMALL
FIRES" This is the best
> lawyer story of the year, decade, and probably the
century! A Charlotte,

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 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! In delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with
the insurance company
> that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated,
nevertheless, that the

had warranted that the
> cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it
would insure them
against

unacceptable fire, and was
> obligated to pay the claim. Rather than endure
lengthy and costly appeal

and paid $15,000 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

his own insurance

used against him, the

insured property and was

This is a true story
and

Lawyers Award Contest.
