Breaking! Robert Fiore Has a New Case!



After a drunk guy who makes $34 million in the NFL broke a door knob, Mr. Fiore brought the hammer: "They were scared,” said the family’s attorney, Robert Fiore, who filed the lawsuit Monday in Miami-Dade circuit court. “My client was holding on for dear life.” Not just life. Dear life.

The details are here.

The rich NFL player apologized (and I hope bought a new door knob!)

Not so fast.

“We allege that Mr. Bryant made more than a simple, inconsequential mistake,” Fiore said, “and that Mr. Bryant’s conduct has significant legal consequences.”

It can't be that simple to get a guy that big, that drunk. And all that booze was probably not a mistake. So I give Bob that. Restoration Hardware has a significant selection of door knobs but they are not inexpensive. Thus, the damages are not inconsequential. But the defendant took a cab to what he thought was home (been there, done that.) This is going to be a tough trial for Bob.

N.B.: Is it really only Tuesday?

What is the claim?

Who is Robert Fiore and why does he have so much make up on his face on his FB page photo?

Not so sure "N.B." is used correctly there.

Intentional infliction of emotional distress I assume?

Intentional infliction of emotional distress - FAIL!!! How could he intentionally cause it if he was drunk.

Negligent infliction of ED??? Maybe...but damages - no touchy, no major damages...impact rule!!! That is why he stressed so much that they were holding the door!

Wrong blog.

Does anyone else find this a bit racist? Would this have been filed if a drunk white man knocked on his door?
