Insurance Companies are Douche Bags!


The link is to Law.com, (one of the great law blawgs), which reports this AM, about the insurance company that sought to avoid providing a defense to an insured, a business man who had called a rival businessman a "douche bag." 

The Court in holding that the insurer was on the hook for a "defense and coverage," held the expression, "douche" or "douche bag" to be an opinion not subject to being proved false and therefore actually not defamatory;  thus the remark is not an "intentional tort" excluded under the businessman's liability insurance policy.

  1. wait--did someone actually sue someone else for calling him a douche bag? What a litigious douche bag.

  2. Oh, trust me (never a trust a lawyer who says, "oh, trust me") we will continue our exploration of stupid lawsuits!

  3. I prefer the big bag, i think they are more comfortable. I really liked this blog, is very interesting and out of common. I prefer to read blogs which catch my attention and this one achieved. I think is wonderful,and i liked the way how is was written.
