I've always wanted to take a trip to London. Maybe next Fall.

Then it don't matter. I'll be all around in the dark - I'll be everywhere. Wherever you can look - wherever there's a fight, so hungry people can eat, I'll be there, takin' pictures. Wherever there's a cop beatin' up a guy, I'll be there, takin' pictures. I'll be in the way guys yell when they're mad, and trollin' 'em to make 'em madder. I'll be in the way kids laugh when they're hungry and they know supper's ready, and when the people are eatin' the stuff they raise and livin' in the houses they build - I'll be there, too, tryin' to take it away from 'em. And wherever there's a liability suit awaitin' to be filed...

This can't be real!

This is an old bar exam hypo!

Seriously, the exam hypo has to do with a shopkeeper's liability after a customer slips on a squashed banana. The answer always is it goes to the jury.

Reminds me of the "Macdonald's coffee was too hot" lawsuit. I guess we can look forward to having velcro strips pasted on fruit. Won't someone think of the children?

Strongbeerrules: Reminds me of the "Macdonald's coffee was too hot" lawsuit.


Do people still not effing realize that wasn't entirely a frivolous lawsuit?

agh

/jury found her 20% at fault
//but McDonald's was STILL heating their coffee to unsafe temperatures
///Further, McDonalds' quality assurance manager testified that the company actively enforces a requirement that coffee be held in the pot at 185 degrees, plus or minus five degrees. He also testified that a burn hazard exists with any food substance served at 140 degrees or above, and that McDonalds coffee, at the temperature at which it was poured into styrofoam cups, was not fit for consumption because it would burn the mouth and throat. The quality assurance manager admitted that burns would occur, but testified that McDonalds had no intention of reducing the "holding temperature" of its coffee.

I googled "nelson simpsons grapes of wrath" for a screencap because I can't find my HDD.

Worked in a produce dept. for years, the regionals and other higher-ups were completely terrified of grapes on the floor for this very reason. Every time we'd have a sale on em a reminder would come down to watch the floor for loose fruit extra closely.

Could have been worse. Could have slipped on orange soda, or as they call it in the business, "magic slippery stuff".

His son Sandeep, 29, said that the business was insured for accidents but because of a legal loophole they would almost certainly be liable for the full amount.

What kind of loophole is this? Why even HAVE insurance?? Or was this policy only against volcanoes or something?

And so we have paper sleeves on our take-out coffee as well as text on the cups informing us that the beverage is "hot". Thank-you very much.

What's the next crisis?

If it's in the Daily Mail, it must be true, and accurate, and the whole story.

Guess you failed the English and Welsh Bar Exams given that there is no jury in a civil claim...

Why is there a dog in that recycling bin?

Legal loophole is probably that the accident was outside his premises on public property (the pavement) but he's at fault for leaving the grape on the ground.

Most supermarkets in the UK have carpet around the grape area for this reason.

Woman should have looked what she was putting her feet in. Who would she have sued had it been a dog turd she slipped on?

CSB:
I used to install CCTV systems for hotels and fastfood businesses. Had trouble selling the owners of 15 or so Burger King stores the DVR camera system, but they decided to try two. The next damn day they had a slip and fall. The guy claims he had no way of knowing the floor was slippery. I got to watch the incident recording.
Guy is seated with family, facing towards the front of the store. Guy watches employee place 'wet floor' sign not 6 feet from him. Guy watches employee mop down the aisle next to him. Guy's head turns to follow employee mopping past him. Guy stands up. Looks around. And promptly falls over without taking so much as a step. He was claiming $20,000 in injuries. Owners handed him a copy of the incident on disc, and basicly indicated he could EABOD.
The day after that, they ordered DVRs for the rest of their locations.

It's your own fault for being retarded enough that you don't look where you're walking, that you bought a pair of shiatty shoes with no traction, and that you don't exercise so your bones and muscles are weak.

I'd probably be a crappy lawyer, but I'd scream that shiat to her face in court.
