The 149th Kentucky Derby will happen Saturday, continuing a long custom of horse racing and, typically, betting. The latter has actually implied that attorneys have actually had a long history with the sport. Here are a couple of stories.
After a male called Criswell lost $320 on a horse race, he thought the contest had actually been repaired. He took legal action against. A Louisiana jury concluded that he was ideal and granted him the return of his wager, plus an extra $320 for the quantity that he would have won had actually the race been run relatively. The Louisiana Supreme Court, in Criswell v. Gaster (1826 ), reversed the windfall. Since the wager was based upon scams, the court observed that “absolutely nothing might have been lost on it, and as a result absolutely nothing might be won.”
