First, Kill All the Lawyers…

03 Jun

The quote from Shakespere’s Henry VI doesn’t men what most people think it does…

But I think it has something to do with these cases!

Threatened With Furniture Repo, Bank Pays Debt

A Florida couple turned the tables on Bank of America when they attempted to have furniture repossessed from their local branch to satisfy a $2,500 debt. Instead of letting authorities seize property, the bank cut a check to pay off the debt stemming from a lawsuit resolved last year, reports the Fort Myers News-Press.

Et Tu Bank A! Indeed…

Woman Sues Dunkin’ Donuts for Putting Sugar in Coffee

 

A Philadelphia woman is suing Dunkin’ Donuts, saying a worker mistakenly put sugar in her coffee that ultimately caused her to go into diabetic shock. Danielle Jordan’s lawsuit claims she asked for artificial sweetener to be added to her coffee during a June 2009 visit. After she downed the drink (that’s right, downed), Jordan says she became dizzy, light-headed, and ended up making an emergency trip to the hospital.

Walking into a Dunkin Doughnuts would send the average Diabetic into shock. What part of “we sell sugar” sailed over this woman’s head? If you want something besides sugar – go to the “Fruit and Yogurt Stand” down the street. They are never busy…

Law School Grad Can’t Find Job, Sues College for $50M

 

At least she’s found some use for her education. A 2008 graduate of San Diego’s Thomas Jefferson School of Law is suing her alma mater for $50 million because she hasn’t secured a full-time job as an attorney. She alleges the college falsified its post-graduate employment statistics, reports 760 KFMB-AM. The former student—who graduated with honors and passed the bar on her first try—says she attended the school because of its reported 70% post-grad employment rate.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff—who works as a freelance document reviewer—has been “unable to secure a full-time job as an attorney that pays more than non-legal jobs available to her,” and she would “not have attended TJSL and incurred more than $150,000 in school loans if she knew the truth about her job prospects upon graduation.” The school denies the claim of false advertising, and a dean says it isn’t the duty of the college to find jobs for graduates. “It is the responsibility of the person who is paying so much for an education to figure out what they’re going to be able to do with it,” she says. “I guess it’s a very expensive life lesson.”

Perhaps she should consider standing in line at Dunkin Doughnuts? Or even better Crispy Creme and waiting for someone to keel over!

You KNOW the economy is in the tank…

When Lawyers start suing each other!

    Mr BT:

    I was in a Dunkin Donuts in Philadelphia yesterday.

    Not only did they sell sugar with their coffee – they had all of the donuts and coffee pots behind bullet proof glass.

    In Philly it seems that the threat of “insulin shock” is not the reason why they have the glass in so many retail outlets.

    (Why doesn’t Filled Negro report on these things?)

      You made it off the “don’t let this Negro out of town” list?

      Did the nice policeman have any trouble with the ankle bracelet?

    This is the heart of the struggle:

    “Ladies and gentlemen, America was a great country before 1965,” Santorum added. But was it?

    Quite honest this man Rick
