I have a feeling it's going to be a good day.
Because the blogger gods have blessed us with this:
An unusual medical malpractice trial opens in a Miami court Monday, one in which a jury will have to decide whether an anesthesiologist can be held liable for a patient losing his penis.In Peru.
The plaintiff, former Miami resident Enrique Milla, will be testifying at the trial via Skype because American authorities deported him and his family back to Peru last year.
“Mr. Milla lived in Miami for 40 years and worked in the medical supply business and paid taxes,” said Spencer Aronfeld, Milla’s Coral Gables attorney. “It shouldn’t make a difference that he was deported.
“At the end of the day, he has to sit down to pee through a tube.”
He has to sit down to pee through a tube, it's just now he has to do that in Peru.
Oy veh, a deported client testifying by Skype about his amputated penis.
But he did have his penis amputated, for goodness sake!
Still, defense attorney Jay Chimpoulis says bad luck just happens to unlucky people:
“What happened to Mr. Milla was just bad luck,” said Boeru’s attorney, Jay Chimpoulis. “But filing frivolous lawsuits won’t change his bad luck.”I agree!
BTW, what's "frivolous" about the lawsuit, specifically?
In other news, your wait time to evict that deadbeat tenant is about to get longer:
“It’s awful. They only answer the telephone now a couple of days a week; things take a week or more to get into the official records; judges don’t get files for hearings; the whole thing is a mess,” said Miami civil attorney Michael Feiler. “Overall service has declined drastically — not because of the clerks, who work hard — but because of the lack of staff and the ridiculous workload.”On the other hand, the cafecito at the courthouse coffee shop is delicious, so it all kinda balances out, right?
