Was watching 2 TV judge shows today # 1 A) Woman sues chef for getting sick after eating. Defense - women brought her own lobster to restaurant B) counter suit - chef sues woman for proven loss of business Judge rules that A)woman cannot prove it was food obtained by chef that made her sick. B) Judge rules against chef for counter suit because there was no proof it wasn't his food. My thinking, if he won part one of case, he should prevail in counter suit. Case # 2 Man drys his sneakers in friends dryer - sneakers destroys dryer - cost $2,000 (she was not at home) Man counter sues for $100 for cost of his sneakers Judge rules for woman but only for $600, as her home insurance will cover rest of cost. (she states if she submits claim - her insurance will go up - judge says insurance company can recoup from man) Man looses counter suit I say since man was in the wrong, he should pay for entire amount of washer Do you watch Judge shows? if so how often, regular, sometimes, sporadic, never? I like to watch, not so much for the result, but the reasoning behind the ruling. Thoughts?
