Blind Justice

Talking with a lawyer-friend about personal injury cases, I asked if beautiful people are awarded more money in disfigurement cases, than an average looking individuals.

He laughed, but confirmed my hunch. Juries tend to see a beautiful person as having lost more than an average-looking joe and are more likely to award that individual more money.

This is hardly a scientific fact, but based on his personal practice…Still I think it's sick, just sick….

btw...just wanted to tell you that for some reason (and i know people hate this when they hear shit like this, but fuckit) i think you look like natalie portman. and personally, i think she's hot (even though i don't know if i care for her acting...)

so, if you ever get disfigured, i think you'll do fine with your reward money...
