It’s a long weekend and people will be making merry in the streets and between the sheets. Speaking of sheets here is a fascinating case and since BU is home to many legal experts – some with formal training and the majority trained at the “school of hard knocks”- I thought that I’d bring it to their attention to get feedback on an interesting legal argument.
Seems an Australian woman who was travelling on a work assignment decided to get it on with an acquaintance at the motel where she was staying, while they were playing “hide the sausage” the light fixture fell off the ceiling onto her face causing injuries to her mouth and nose.
Now her lawyer is appealing a ruling from the Workmen’s Compensation Board which denied her claim for compensation for the injury. It seems that the claim hinged on the fact that she was travelling on business and “sex is an ordinary lawful incident of life”.
Well you can read the rest….
