This is a follow-up blog on the Patricia Cornwell trial. Plus, I am throwing in a story about the most expensive drink at Starbucks. The only thing they have in common is… well, I’m not sure there really is anything. But, I guess “Big” could be the one common factor. First, let’s look at the verdict.
Previously, I wrote a blog on the lawsuit and trial of Patricia Cornwell, where she had sued her financial “gurus” for the mismanagement of her money. (previous blog) Well, after a six week trial the jury has spoken. A 51 Million Dollar Verdict!
She had sued CPA firm Anchin, Block & Anchin for mismanaging her money on real estate, vehicles and a helicopter. Plus, she said that her tax returns were filed in such a way that triggered audits and caused the FBI to investigate her campaign contributions. As previously discussed, the CPA firm defended the lawsuit by saying that her losses were based on her lavish choices in lifestyle.
In the jungle the mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight. Maybe not the CPA’s who tried to pass the blame.
And in connection to a BIG verdict, this coffee story caught my attention.
Beau Chevassus decided to give himself a special birthday gift… the most expensive Starbucks drink ever. He sauntered into his local Starbucks and ordered Forty-eight shots of espresso, some protein powder, two bananas, a few caramel drizzle Frappuccino chips, some vanilla bean and some soy. Soon, he had the above coffee bill totaling $47.30.
The real question, “did he drink it”?”. He reports only taking a few sips in the store. Then, he drank about half of it over the course of the next few days.
See, I couldn’t figure out how to work that in a legal blog. It works if it’s combined with a big verdict. Well, maybe a little!
