True but incredible story...........


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 now......... .. ......... ......... )
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 thus obligated to pay the claim.
So, rather than endure a 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.

This is a true story and was the First Place winner in the Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.

Custody of the child????

Scene: Husband and Wife in court getting a divorce.
The problem: who should get custody of the child????

Wife jumped up and said: "Your Honour! I brought the child into this world with pain and labour so it should be in my custody."

The judge turns to Husband and says "What do you have to say in your defence?"

The husband sat for a while contemplating then slowly rose.

"Your Honour. If I put a dollar in a vending machine and a Pepsi comes out, whose Pepsi is it? the machine's or mine?"

Yeh sunke...Wife replied : "Judge sahab...bartan mera...doodh bhi mera...aur usme dahi jamane ke liye
2 boond daalne se dahi bana to fir wo dahi kiska..? mera ya do boond daalne wale ka"

Husband replied : "Typewriter mein kagaz Maine dala, keys daba-daba kar mehnat Maine ki,
fir chithi kiski? typewriter ki ya meri?"

Frustrated Judge (getting mad):
"Abay saale agar tu chithi haath se hi likh leta to yahan par custody ki naubat hi na aati."
