    Maybe this attorney should move his case to Maryland were the dumb-o-crats can pass a \”thrown shrimp\” health care package to be paid for by Wal-Mart.

    I guess it does not matter where you live, all the states have crooks that call themselves attorneys. How much money will be wasted defending the crock of you know what? The dude obviously had something else wrong with him before or afterwards. If this does not get thrown out of court, the judge should be thrown in the nearest dump because he/she certainly is full of it and belongs there.

    I disagree with \”Another Unbelieveable\”. I have seen the chefs throw food many times in those restaurants. I have had it happen to me and it is not pleasant. If I were a juror, I would be hard pressed to believe that didn\’t happen and was not the cause of injury. I would need more information to decide if it was the cause of death, but definatley the cause of injury.

    If ducking to avoid a shrimp caused injuries to the extent he needed surgery then obviously he had pre-existing injury to the neck. If he had been standing outside and ducked to avoid bird ****… we\’d see the same results but who could he sue? I guess the surgeon who operated on him is not enjoined in the suit…what a farce.

    I guess life does imitate art. John Belushi must be getting a big chuckle out of this one.

    My son loves to go to the Japanese steakhouse and at the end of the meal, the chef asks if you want to catch a shrimp. Who knows how this started, I am sure the plantiff\’s attorney will inform the court, but I have never not had the chef ask me if I wanted to catch the shrimp. I also have never seen a shrimp thrown at someone who said \”no thank you.\”

    I can not believe that whoever posted the Jan. 16th 12:05 post is even from this planet!

    No educated, sane person could believe this case. I suggest that if you want to file suit and you loose you pay the legal fees of the defense and have the plaintiff attorney contribute!

    Maybe then some reality would enter the picture.

    Maybe

    It seems that this went to trial last week. In court papers, the restaurant alleges Colaitis was not dodging the shrimp, but was hurt trying to catch one with his mouth (assumption of the risk???). The deceased was a Long Island fur magnate, and the widow is upset, hence the $10M claim (nothing that a bunch of cash won\’t fix). I have seen a lot of outrageous claims since I got out of law school, but this one is up there in my top ten!

    You know it\’s hard to blame a shrimp when the family is trying to be \”Shellfish\” themselves.

    I\’m sorry…I couldn\’t resist

    Yo,Yo,Yo. This happened on da Island and there ain\’t no hits out there without Mr. S\’s ok, therefore, ipso factotem, this is an accident. If assistance is needed with the jury, please call Mr.S.
