On The Lighter Side
I sue you!
THIRSTING FOR JUSTICE
An uncle promised to pay his nephew $5,000 if he kept away from ‘drinking liquor, using tobacco, swearing and playing cards or billiards for money’ until he was 21. A tall order, but the nephew did it. Meanwhile, the uncle died. The young man pursued the executor for his promised cash like an unpaid legal bill all the way to the New York Appeal Court, where he won his case.
(Hamer v. Sidway, 1891)
Louis XV is reputed to have said, “What is life without coffee? In fact, what is it with coffee?" In 1992 Stella Lieback found the answer: it’s a pain and she knew where. She bought a cup of coffee from a drive through McDonald’s. She was adding sugar to it in her grandson’s parked car when the coffee spilled into her lap leaving her with third-degree burns over her perineum, buttock and groin. She was in hospital for 8 days and had to have several skin grafts. McDonald’s offered her $800 compensation. A jury in Albuquerque, New Mexico upped that to almost $2.9 million damages, reduced on appeal. She eventually settled for an undisclosed sum around $600,000. (Stella Lieback v. McDonald’s Corp, 1992)
