This was too hilarious to not share <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
This line takes the cake:<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Naturally the attorney for the couple has moved to dismiss Dimmick's lawsuit for various reasons, one of which includes the fact that a contract cannot be legally binding if a person is forced into agreeing to it at knifepoint.</div>

Classic stuff!<br><br><i>Slightly</i> reminescent of something that happened at a company where I worked; After a series of burglaries the director chose, as a security device, a 'smokecloak'. Basicaly they fill a room with a non toxic but completeley blinding smoke if an intrusion is detected. Idea simply being that the intruder(s) are immobilised are are thus very likely to still be groping around in pitch dark when the occifers of the law eventualy deem it fit to arrive.<br><br>
Companies insurers said they would refuse to insure if such a device were employed.<br><br>
Reason being that law suits for any injury the burglars encurred if they hurt themselves trying to escape were very likely to succeed.<br><br>
Security devices that gave the burglars every chance to escape, and return to try another day, were duly deployed.

I feel that the couple were being rather evasive and diabolical. It takes alot to kidnap someone AND it's already stressful enough to actually do it. And the fact that they were willing to do more than try and escape shows me that they were being pretty selfish in regards to Dimmick. poor guy.

I bet his knife was confiscated as evidence, too. I hope his lawsuit will include compensation for the loss of his weapon.</div>

man, what a valid point. but then again, if he gets attacked and doesn't have said knife, that's a few more lawsuits waiting in the wings.

I should probably pick up a copy of that DVD just in case. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
