Lawsuits 101

June 4, 2010 by admncc

The wife of late actor, David Carradine, gets my vote for the moronic lawsuit filer of the week award.  According to TMZ, Anne Carradine “is suing the production company of the movie he was shooting when he died, claiming the company should never have left David alone that night.”

If you’ll recall, the “Kung Fu” star died of auto-erotic asphyxiation (the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal) one year ago.  He was found hanged to death in a closet in his hotel room.

Anyway, Anne’s legal argument is that David wouldn’t have died “had the production company fulfilled its obligations and followed industry standards in caring for its star.”  Basically, she’s saying that because David’s movie assistant went to dinner without him that night, Carradine had to amuse himself – and we all know what the result of that was…  You can read the full story here.

This ridiculous lawsuit is an example of what’s wrong with the judicial system today.  People want a tasty settlement, so they sue first and ask questions later.  I didn’t realize that movie stars needed babysitters either…

    So basically she is trying to say that it is not her Husband’s fault for accidentally killing himself in some freak sex act, but instead there should have been someone telling him that you should not be doing that crazy stunt.

    Could it be that she is so distraught over losing her husband, that she is looking to blame someone or she is no longer going to be living off any income he was able to produce for her to live a nice life?

    Makes you wonder what lawyers are thinking when they say yes I will take your case.

  2. Jen says:

    That’s so funny because I just sent you a lawsuit story!

    On to David Carradine…What the heck? Can no one take responsibility for wrapping a belt around their own necks these days?!? Geesh!

  3. C. Princess says:

    I’m sorry for her loss but the lawsuit sounds ridiculous.

  4. What’s worse is the lawyers that take these cases.

  5. Hal says:

    Famous power-attorney, Mark Geragos, took this case. But like ReformingGeek said, I’m not sure why. He probably thought he could bulldog in and get a quick settlement. But if I were the production company, I’d fight it for any number of reasons.

  6. Titfortat says:

    Nothing unusual here. I would have been surprised if the American wifee didnt sue. Afterall passing the buck is your national pastime. 😉

  7. NeoConDon says:

    David Carradine died…??? Bummer.

  8. Angelica says:

    Ahhh, The Legend Continues.


  9. ok really?

    there is something seriously wrong for people who think its arousing not to be able to freaking BREATHE.

    what the crap.

  10. Marissa says:

    I think it’s just a coincidence that he died in “tie-land”.

  11. TallElf says:

    And you would think…

    The “love engine” like any other needs oxygen to function. Restrict air, and the motor slows. increase airflow, and you would increase performance.

    Furthermore the history of “HEAVY Breathing” would infer that you would need to breathe when having acts as such.

    When they refer to someone as being well hung, that doesn’t include a leather strap around the neck either.

    I think it was just a case of confusion.

  12. Jacki says:

    So the next time I slice my finger while chopping vegetables with a knife, I can sue the knife company because I was chopping vegetables without adult supervision? Sweet!

  13. Mike E says:

    I posted this comment previously to be funny but after reading this I think I may have a case:

    I should sue the beer and pizza industries for my weight issues, the college I attended for not educating me to the fact late night beer and pizza isn’t good for my health and the fitness industry for not sending someone to my house to get me off the couch and exercise.

  14. Zig the "People" person says:

    All I gotta say is that must be some kind of Orgasm…to try to strangle one’s self to get there!! Why doesn’t the production company file a counter suit claiming that the wife wasn’t/couldn’t/didn’t get her man “THERE.”
