    A Charlotte, North Carolina 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 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 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.

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