A group of boys were playing in a group shower at camp, sliding on the tile. One of the boys turned over and caught his penis on a drain, causing a significant gash. A camp leader used a maxi pad to stop the blood. The boy was severely injured and had to endure significant embarrassment. He filed a lawsuit against the camp, which was quickly settled.

NOW THIS IS CRAZY A ROBBER IS SUING A CUSTOMER THAT STOPPED THE ROBBERY IN PROGRESS

A man who risked his life to stop an armed suspect from robbing a California coffee shop may face legal problems because of his heroic actions. A few months ago there was an attempted robbery at a large coffee shop. The suspect was wearing a mask and threatening the cashier with a gun and a knife. Witnessing the robbery in progress, a fellow customer picked up a chair and slammed it over the robbers’ head to try and stop him.

A violent fight then ensued, where investigators say the customer who stepped in to stop the robbery was stabbed in the neck by the robber before he managed to wrestle the knife away and stab the would-be robber multiple times. The Chief of Police was interviewed and said it was an incredibly heroic act and the way most people would think that they would respond but may not have the courage to respond. He went on to state it’s not something we recommend, in this case it was a good outcome. Nobody died as a result of this incident, but they very well could have.

Unfortunately, it seems that the customer’s good deed may not go unpunished. The would be robbers’ mother says she believes the customer that stepped in used excessive force when attempting to stop her son and that her son plans to sue over his injuries. The would be robber has 17 total stab wounds, lacerations, and defensive wounds. She went on to state the guy went from a good Samaritan to a vigilante. Stabbing somebody that many times is crazy and it doesn’t take that many stab wounds to get somebody to succumb to you.

Bad Parent

A football coach made a work comp claim–he fell and struck and broke his nose on the bench. The incident report stated he tripped. When we took his recorded statement, he said there was an error in the report. It should have said he was tripped. It turned out that a player’s father stuck his foot out and tripped the coach, because the player was benched for violating a team rule.

HOMEOWNERS CRAZY CLAIM

Today, I received a CRAZY CLAIM. An insured called to report he was watching a scary movie with his kids in the Living room. He was watching it with them to “kind of torture them during the movie and then continue to scare them when they went to bed.”

During a critical part of the movie where it something very scary was about to happen, the kids were sitting on the edge of the seats and our insured was getting ready to scare them when a DEER busted through the front window . Needless to say it terrified everyone! The deer was stunned and laid on the floor for a few minutes and then got up and bolted around the house like a crazed animal trying to get back out. He eventually went right back out the front window the way he came in.

The aftermath pictures are crazy as there is deer blood flung everywhere! Happy Halloween to that family. They will never watch that movie again!

CLAIMANT ALLEGES EXTREMELY HOT TEA AT DRIVE THROUGH KILLED HER DOG

A Colorado woman filed a lawsuit against a popular coffee chain for an improperly served cup of hot tea, which spilled and severely burned both her and her dog. According to a complaint she is seeking over $75,000 in damages.

She alleges she did not state that she wanted her tea “extra hot,” but it was served “unreasonably hot” anyway—with an insecure lid, in a single cup, without a hot-cup sleeve”. Once the Plaintiff received the cup of tea into her hands, the hot temperature of the cup began to burn her hands”. “Hot tea began to spill out of the cup through the unsecured lid and onto Plaintiff’s body. The tea caused Plaintiff’s clothing to melt. The tea caused severe burns to Plaintiff. Plaintiff immediately experienced intense pain including on her stomach, legs, and lap.”

Her scream and crying led her dog to jump onto her lap, at which point he was burned by the tea. Though he was taken to an emergency veterinarian, he died shortly after from his injuries. The claimant was treated for her severe burns at the hospital and had to get skin-graft surgery for “2% total body surface area second-degree burn injury to the abdomen and bilateral thighs,” she also alleges the incident left her with permanent scarring, loss of feeling, and emotional distress.

PIZZA TEXTING MAY RESULT IN A SETTLEMENT

A California Man is taking a national pizza chain to court for texting him too many pizza offers via an automated marketing system. This case may be legally valid: Because the claimatn texted “STOP” to the robo-text system and the messages kept coming, the practice could be a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

The court filing argued the texts cause Anozie “to suffer a significant amount of anxiety, frustration, and annoyance.” The case hasn’t been resolved, and the claimant is asking for $500 per text received.

MOTION TO QUASH A SUBPOENA

I work for a Legal Process Service Company for insurance defense clients. Today, I received a Motion to Quash a Subpoena. i scoured the document to figure out why it was being rejected.

I finally figured out instead of addressing the subpoena to “The State Compensation Insurance Fund” It had been addressed to ” The State Compensation Insurance FRAUD. I guess they don’t believe in typos. They could have called our office and advised of the typo. Instead their legal department went to the trouble of preparing a six page Motion to Quash the Subpoena. That is waste of tax payers money!!!!

RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES IN AND OUT BURGER VERSUS SMASHBURGER

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+4 (4 votes)

Irvine-based In-N-Out Burger filed a trademark infringement lawsuit Monday, Aug. 28 against Denver-based Smashburger, claiming the fast food rival’s “Smashburger Triple Double” is too similar to its famed “Double Double” burger.
“Smashburger’s use of the Triple Double and Smashburger Triple Double marks is likely to confuse and mislead the consuming public, and injure In-N-Out, by causing consumers to believe incorrectly that Smashburger’s products originate from or are authorized by In-N-Out,” the lawsuit states.

The Southern California institution, whose large fan base is the envy of its rivals, said In-N-Out owns multiple trademarks for its various sandwiches. Some trademarks were obtained more than 40 years ago.

“Since at least as early as 1963, In-N-Out has continuously used its registered DOUBLE-DOUBLE trademark in connection with hamburger sandwiches in interstate commerce. Since at least as early as 1966, In-N-Out has continuously used its registered TRIPLE TRIPLE trademark in connection with hamburger sandwiches in interstate commerce,” the lawsuit stated.

Smashburger was founded in Denver in 2007. The chain has grown quickly, entering Orange County in 2012. It has three locations in Orange County. The better burger concept is known for using gourmet toppings such as goat cheese, truffle mayonnaise and mini portabella mushrooms.

Smashburger, like In-N-Out, also uses toasted and lightly buttered sponge-dough buns. Launched in mid-July, Smashburger’s Triple Double features two burger patties and three slices of cheese.

“This will be Smashburger’s new iconic menu item, providing three times the cheese and double the beef in every bite,” chain co-founder Tom Ryan said in a statement this summer.
The privately held In-N-Out has a reputation for fiercely protecting its brand from copycats. In the past, they have sued restaurants for using similar decor, uniforms and logos — which are all protected under the company’s trademark portfolio.
