Furious dad pays back $500,000 in Insurance money for son who died in car crash — with 4 TONS of quarters

4 Tons of Quarters

A retired Illinois foot surgeon paid back a court ordered $500,000 in insurance money the unconventional way — in quarters that weighed 4 tons.

Roger Herrin was awarded $1.6 million in personal insurance compensation when his teenage son, Michael Herrin, was killed in a Jeep crash in 2001. Michael, 15, was the only passenger killed in the crash. Three survivors who were also in the Jeep sued Roger Herrin who collected the bulk of an additional $800,000 insurance policy, since his son was the only one killed.

After a decades long court battle, Herrin was ordered to pay back $500,000 of the $800,000 to the survivors who complained that he received too large a cut of the insurance proceeds.

“I’ve had 10 years to think about this a little bit, and I’m very, very bitter at this ruling,” he said. “It’s wrong, and everybody knows it’s wrong.”

Kenya Moore Skips Out On Paying Mansion Rent

Kenya Moore skips out on rent

The tabloid headlines read: “KENYA MOORE EVICTED,” but in reality, Kenya Moore simply skipped out on paying the remaining rent due on her leased mansion when she moved back to California.

When Bravo announced Kenya’s addition to the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 5 in 2012, insiders wondered how Kenya could be an “Atlanta housewife” when A. she isn’t married, and B. she doesn’t live in Atlanta.

The latter problem was solved when Bravo found a mansion for Kenya to lease during filming. Many homeowners found themselves underwater on their mortgages when the housing bubble burst in 2007. Some homeowners hold off the banks by leasing their mansions to the entertainment industry for music videos and movies.

Last week, Khyati’s lawyer, Vip Bhola, announced she planned to sue Miguel and Billboard pending the results of the doctor’s exam.

Bhola says Khyati is experiencing neurological symptoms consistent with brain damage.

“Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury,” Bhola, told TMZ.

Bhola also said the Billboard staff should have rushed Khyati to a hospital rather than give her an ice pack.

Chris Brown’s attorney says L.A. prosecutors have ‘lost their minds’

Chris Brown Mark Geragos

Troubled singer Chris Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos responded angrily to allegations made by the Los Angeles County district attorney and prosecutors that Brown faked his community service paperwork.

The District Attorney’s office is seeking to revoke singer Chris Brown’s probation based on what they called “fraudulent” paperwork. According to documents filed by the DA’s office, Brown filed reports claiming he was painting murals at a children’s center and picking up trash in Virginia when he was actually on a plane to Cancun, Mexico.

“Apparently the district attorney’s office has completely lost their minds,” Geragos told the LA Times. “They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports.”
