We've had the same sort of thing happen in our "you signed for it" world, so I can't say that I'm all that surprised.

Maybe he was busy rolling around in his settlement cash....

Probably controversial but I'm an ill-educated ****

Do the Spams get a good payout if they get mullered? We've all heard the story of the U.S. burglar who sued his victim cos he fell and landed on one of the house-owners knives.

It happened to a mate of mine in 1991.

Havent seen him since 1996, but if I remember correctly his packet came under attack, his vehicle commander was killed and he got covered in gore. His webbing was burnt as a biological hazard. Got back to BAOR and the SQMS tried billing him for the missing webbing. I seem to recall it was the same action where the 2 REME were also killed trying to defend them (LCpl, SSgt).

He was never right in the head after that, and PVR'd shortly after.

He should have just refused to pay, stated the loss was due to neither negilgenece nor willful misconduct, written a sworn statement regarding the circumstances of loss, and been done with it.
According to the story:
He was told to pay nearly $700 or face not being discharged for weeks, perhaps months.

A crate of lager normally works well, few bottles of port if he fancies some class.
Send now and I'll see what I can do.
