I am a private investigator. I have a pick- up truck with a camper shell and do surveillance out of the camper shell part of the vehicle. I climb from the front see through the partition into the camper shell. All of the windows are tinted very dark. You can’t see inside but, I have an excellent 360 view out of the windows. My cover was blown when the claimant who was a known “Gang Banger” and whom I was doing surveillance on used a “jimmy” to unlock the driver’s side door of my truck and tried to hotwire my truck to STEAL it. I was inside the vehicle in the camper section and had to yell at him, “What the Hell do you think you are doing?’ He was immediately startled and could not get out of my vehicle fast enough. He ran all the way down the street and disappeared. At least I got film of him running down the street as he alleged he could not run. However, I could no longer work the case as he had been casing my truck for two days. If I came back to the neighborhood he would be terrified that I may be looking for him and may try to retaliate. So my boss had to pass on the case to another investigator.

Our insured rear ended a car at a stop light. Our insured stated he was not going very fast when the accident occurred and there was minor damage to both vehicles. But he did admit fault. Two passengers were in the car he hit and said they had no injuries.
Several months later we started receiving huge bills from a chiropractor that was treating the two people who were in the car our claimant hit. I talked the appraiser and he said neither car had much damage. Our claimant then received a copy of a lawsuit that was filed by the car he hit. He called frantic and was upset on how this happened. He said he wanted to change his testimony. He said he actually was sitting at the stop light and FELL ASLEEP and just tapped the car in front of him. He said no way could they have that serious of injuries from his light tap. He said he was too embarrassed to admit that he fell asleep while at a stop light but now he thinks they are inflating their claim.
Looks like we will need to investigate this matter , take depositions and refer out for surveillance!!!!! If he had only told the truth from the beginning!

Claimant checked into her hotel and immediately went to sleep in the bed. She claimed that when she woke up, there was a strange man in the bed and that the hotel gave her the wrong key, which caused emotional distress. The hotel reviewed their security videos and saw video of Claimant, who appeared to be drunk, entering the property with a man, whom she invited to her room. After being shown the video, Claimant was never heard from again.

An army veteran with a history of filing longshot lawsuits is suing the Utah County Clerk over a rejection of his request to marry his computer. In his latest lawsuit, he has argued yet again that he has a right to marry his Macbook if same-sex couples have a right to marry. Sevier sued the state of Utah and the Salt Lake County Clerk earlier this year before deciding to drop the lawsuit. He’s also sued other states including Texas. Now he has sued county clerk Bryan Thompson, who said of the matter: ‘Nothing surprises me anymore.’ Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman says his office will move to get the case dismissed, according to The Daily Herald.
Sevier says he is willing to take the case to the Supreme Court. Sevier has another lawsuit challenging on religious grounds a Utah law allowing Internet service providers to charge for filtering pornography. In 2014, he filed a motion to the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeal arguing that if same-sex couples were allowed to wed, he should be able to tie the knot with his laptop.The amateur model claimed computers were his ‘preferred sexual object’ and enjoyed sex with the devices more than with ‘real women’. He tried to marry the device, which he said was laden with porn, but the licence was rejected by Utah officials on the grounds of ’sexual orientation’. His actions bear similarities to Her, a Spike Jonze film in which the protagonist, played by Joaquin Phoenix, falls in love with his operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Jonze picked up the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay His motion from two years ago, which was 50 pages long, Mr Sevier stated: ‘They discriminated against me when they rejected my request to marry my computer.’
‘I approached the Utah clerk to have a marriage license issued for me and my machine-spouse.’
‘The clerk denied my request for a marriage license … my object of affection was outside the scope of the narrow definition. ‘If gays have the right to “marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack corresponding sexual parts, then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object,’ he added. The motion continued: ‘The true question presented here is whether traditional marriage is a relationship that is stand alone and unequal to all other forms of sexual and spiritual unions.’ ‘The Constitutionality of the law in dispute narrowly defines marriage between one man and one women, not one man and one man, one woman and one woman, one man and one machine, one man and one animal.’ To strengthen the 2014 claim, Mr Sevier cited legal precedents from around the world – including a case where a woman married a dolphin and a Chinese man wed a cardboard cutout of himself.
The courts in the US found his argument was not persuasive enough, and ruled against him. A judge said it was ‘removed from reality’ and had ‘no place’ in an ongoing lawsuit, which is challenging the premise of same-sex marriage legislation. Mr Sevier has previously sued Apple claiming the tech giant should have blocked him from accessing porn when he, apparently by accident, typed ‘F***book.com instead of Facebook into Google.
Sevier went on in the complaint to allege ‘unfair competition’ between the porn stars and his wife, brought about by his use of the Apple product, and thus ‘interference of the marital contract’.

A woman is suing a water park because she was made to ride a flume with a very fat person.
The claimant and her husband are seeking damages from the water park, claiming the 250lb guest caused her serious injuries on a raft ride. The couple believe the added weight of the obese passenger aboard the claimant’s raft caused the ride to become overloaded and dangerous and landed her in the hospital and she had to have surgery as a result of her injuries.
The claimant was on a ride in the water park which requires two people to ride in an inflatable raft down the flume. The claimant says it swayed violently with the heavy load from the fat passenger on board and it slammed her into the interior of the tube causing what she described as severe injuries. She was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
It happened last year, but now the claimant has decided to ask for compensation, and so has her husband for a loss of consortium as a result of her injuries.

We received a claim for a woman that fell ill at work with stomach issues. At first she thought she had the flu and did not think this was work related. She filed the claim several weeks after the injury occurred and submitted medical bills. Our investigation revealed that a co-worker was accused of putting nail polish remover in the company water cooler with the intention of poisoning her fellow employees. She was formally arrested by the local police and has admitted guilt.
We are now accepting the claim and paying benefits. However, the injured employee has now obtained an attorney and is suing the co-worker in civil court for damages and she has changed her claim from stomach issues to her entire internal system and psychiatric benefits. She initially returned to work but now her psychiatrist has taken her off work as she is afraid to return to work in a hostile environment.

A Las Vegas Police officer is facing multiple felony counts after the Nevada Attorney General’s Office alleges he burned a trailer and lied to his insurance company to collect money for it.
The 38 year old officer, faces one count of theft, one count of burning of property with intent to defraud an insurer, one count of attempted theft, two counts of insurance fraud and one count of third-degree arson, authorities said.
He allegedly set fire to a 2014 Keystone Fuzion toy hauler, valued about $45,000, and a 2015 Razor 90 four-wheeler, valued about $6,000, according to a news released from the Attorney General’s Office.
He told his insurance companies the vehicles were burned by “a fire of unknown origin,” according to a criminal complaint filed Monday by the Attorney General’s Office. He sought at least $3,500 for the damage, officials said.
The Clark County Fire Department, however, determined the fires were set intentionally, according to the release.
The defendant’s lawyer denied that his client had anything to do with the fire. The attorney stated the trailer was parked, disabled, along a Nevada highway on the way to Pahrump. The four-wheeler was inside.
A judge in Las Vegas set a preliminary hearing on charges that could get the defendant decades in prison. He remains free on bond. A Metro Police spokeswoman says He joined the department in September 1999. He’ll be suspended without pay pending the outcome of the criminal case.
“This attempt to defraud an insurance company is particularly troubling because it was allegedly committed by a person tasked with enforcing laws and protecting the public,” state Attorney General Adam Laxalt said in a statement.
