Here is a law school problem: Mom, Dad and Kid are riding along and are hit from the side by another car. How many conflicts of interest can you find in this picture? None of the attorneys representing plaintiffs, defendants, counterclaimants or counterclaimant defendants found a single problem, but the court determined that there were too many conflicts between mother driver, father owner, daughter passanger, mother counterclaim defendant, etc, to count. At one point, the mother was arguing that her daughter had no serious physical injury as defined by the insurance law.
Here is the case cite: Dorsainvil v. Parker, 3629/04
Decided: November 21, 2006
