That's good, Im not sure what the point of the law suit is, maybe his travel
insurance may pay out but I can't imagine it being a lot. We don't carry
vast amounts of insurance back home (we don't need it). I can't see them
getting much out of him. Especially as he is probably back in Blighty right
now.

I know if someone sued me when I was back home and took all my assets,
including my home/car etc it wouldn't have amounted to much over here, we
are just are not as rich as you Yanks ;-) That's why Im over here.
