We handle consumer litigation cases – suing debt collectors, mortgage companies for wrongful foreclosures, credit reporting companies for false credit reports and we file personal injury cases. That’s enough for us! Maybe if we were smarter we could handle all types of cases like this extra-ordinary lawyer…… He even offers a “two for one arrest special this week…”

Funny stuff.

Business Insider.com has posted an article about a truly strange idea a man had to help a judge “reconsider” his verdict.

Judge Robert Gettlemen had found Kevin Trudeau, an infomercial pitchman, in contempt of a court order, for $36.7 million, for using deceptive tactics to market a diet program.

Trudeau had the less than brilliant idea to supply his fans with the judge’s email address so they could put in a good word for Trudeau. Needless to say, Gettlemen was pretty annoyed and called an emergency hearing where Trudeau was arrested on charges of criminal contempt and held on $50,000 bail.

This story is both funny and sad. A man received 2000 credit cards from Exxon with his name and account number on them. If you read this story from the always excellent Consumerist, make sure and read the comments. There is one about someone being billed $1.07 (with the threat of a late charge) and sending the gas company 107 checks for a penny each.

We have spent many years handling personal injury and wrongful death cases for Alabama residents and have often heard the tort reform zealots bemoan “big lawsuits”. When we read in the Legal Juice this story about former supreme court nominee and tort reformist Robert Bork, it did not surprise us – see he is suing over a slip and fall for over one million dollars plus the “horrible” punitive damages!

We have often observed that those who preach the loudest against tort reform (insurance companies, executives, etc) will sue in a heart beat if they feel anybody has “done them wrong”.

Read the full story here which also contains the complaint filed this month. The irony is so thick you can cut it….

One time as I was passing an intersection I saw a police car stopped and a car very close behind. The officer was out of the car and then I realized some unfortunate soul had rear ended the police officer. I was reminded of this when I read this post at the South Carolina Trial Law Blog (an excellent blog by the way – I read all the posts there). Hopefully no one was hurt so read the post and enjoy the picture.
