Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Only in America, but I like it.

    In a nutshell, an injured GI and his mate's widow sue an AQ financier.

    Because he's Canadian he can be sued in a US court. For $ 102.6 million.
     
  2. I would of fragged the little shit and then shot him in the face but it does seem a nice little amount..... and a very intresting legal case.

    And he is going to have kind of money handy? Feel sorry for the yanks lads but this is kicking the arrse something stupid.

    As he is being held in Guantanamo, I take it his legal status will change from a POW to common scum criminal to allow this case to proceed?
     
  4. Lets start taking the fight to them. And this is just another way of doing it.
     
  5. If they don't have $102.6 million then who pays - the tax payer?
     
  6. Gents, the whole point of the story is that dad is an alleged AQ financier with lots of money tied up here and there.

    The idea is that they're asset-stripping him via lawsuit.
     
  7. I'm all for it if AQ assets are stripped however if this were legal action taken in UK I am sure it would cost the tax payer and not AQ.
