Oscar claims he was injured while working at the actor's Studio City home ... but when Shatner wanted him to sign a document to release him from financial responsibility ... Oscar refused.

Why would Shatner have been liable? Did he push the guy off a ladder or something?

He has money, that's why!

There's nowhere near enough information in that article to side with anybody. It's all accusations from one party with no response from the other.

But I'm still glad I clicked the link. I love how the site's filter insists on turning Shatner into ****ner in all the comments. Must've been coded by Doohan before he passed.

Shatner is an old, frail man nowadays. He did great work as TJ Hooker in the past and as Denny Crane lately, but to see him drag his good name through the Priceline.com sewer is just sad.

There is no end to the vultures trying to cash in on his fame and fortune.

I'd sue him.

I met Grace Lee Whitney at a convention way back in the 90's. She was funny, very witty and accepting about her being the sexpot on the serie with no real purpose but to look gorgeous. DS9 had ended and I mentioned that Voyager just wasn't all that good or interesting. Quick as a wink, she responded, "Well, what about the new girl they brought on (7 o9 9)? The one with the boobies?" and she made a cupping motion. Everyone near the table just busted a gut at that.

He's got more than money... He's got... Chutzpah. Pizazz. He's got real talent in a world of nobodies. And you can't win a settlement for that.

Can't believe that guy is 81.
He's 13 years older than Keith Richards.

I don't know how it is in the States, but in the UK an employer is legally obligated to provide all reasonable health and safety measures in the workplace and is liable for damages and potential criminal charges in the case of an injury sustained due to health and safety needs not being fully met.

I expect the US law to be similar, at least as far as the civil aspect is concerned. Incidentally, had it been in the UK it wouldn't have mattered if the employee signed a waiver or not. Health and safety protection cannot be legally waived under any circumstances. The document would have been inadmissible in court. Somehow I doubt the US has that restriction.

Ever seen the episode "The Conscience of the King"? Kirk intentionally puts Lt. Riley into a situation where he'll be killed, as bait to out a mass murderer.

And it's not like he intended to save him at the last minute. Riley was put in the loneliest, darkest, emptiest part of the ship. Kirk WANTED him dead, to prove that the bad guy was a murderer.

Picard>Kirk for that alone.

And a year older than Peter O'Toole who looks horrible. I think a little bit of belly/face fat makes you look better in your 70's, 80's

Of course, that speech was a "re-creation" of the "Evil Captain Kirk" from um... Episode, um... 37... uhh... called... "The Enemy Within."

FTFA:

Oscar claims that as a result of his refusal ... the actor and his wife retaliated against him by harassing Oscar and his wife to the point where they were both forced to quit their jobs.

Y'know, most Trekkies would pay to have William Shatner call and berate them at regular intervals.

We have the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which enforces federal workplace safety laws and standards. Domestic workers, however, are exempt from OSHA standards, as are independent contractors and the self-employed.

Every worker in the world could sue their employer for humiliation and mental anguish.

He may be old but he is not that frail - I saw him show his five gaited amatuer horse at the Saddlebred World Championship last month. Not the most game horse I have seen but he still was a very nice horse and he stayed right with him - something that a frail person could not have done...

Hell, I wanted him dead for singing that damn song over and over in The Naked Time.

Right, but a property owner can still be held liable for bodily injury or harm to anyone on their property. The risk increases if they hire someone who doesn't have insurance for their business, and most standard homeowner's insurance policies only offer something like $2-5k for injuries occurring on the property.

Mr. Shatner is clearly the real victim here. Mr. Rodrigo, or whatever, saw a way to cash in on the success of this devastatingly handsome, successful man by faking an injury. Then, when Mr. Shatner asked some innocent, completely justifiable questions about his so-called "injury," he cried harassment like a prom date making excuses to her parents the next morning.

You, the jury, must send a message to the bullies of the world like... whatever his name is that we will not stand idly by while they cheat and scam their way into the savings we worked a lifetime to build.

DENNY CRANE!

Coke got her off the show. She cleaned up, and found spirituality (as oppposed to "got religion"), and she's been great on the Con circuit.

I think you chose the wrong tense here. Nimoy IS a God.
 
2012-09-05 04:13:59 PM
well, of Course; but in the Fringe universe, until he destroys two universes and creates a new one in his image (so to speak) he is merely a god-in-waiting.
