Fucking backwards country folk!

We went to the courthouse today with our lawyers to meet with Mark Nigon and his slimy Lawyer, for a mediation conference. I was fully expecting nothing to happen. They offered Julie XXX and she laughed at them, then they offered her XXX and ……………… HER CASE SETTLED! I couldn’t believe it. Then came the hammer. Mark Nigon was able to position his finances so that half of the equity in his house was under his name and half under his wife’s name. He once again took to hiding under his wife’s skirt. How’s that for a real man? This meant that we could only go after XXX. Furthermore there is a $45,000 homestead exemption in Colorado so we could really only get XXX from him when all was said and done. On the flip side we could collect paychecks from him for the rest of his life, although hicks like this usually don’t live that long. He offered XXX and we settled. It was almost worth it to have the case over with. We get the insurance money now and then he has 30 days after he gets out of jail to come up with the rest. If he doesn’t then he gets a judgment entered for a half million.

The Judge that mediated the case was really cool and told Mark Nigon point blank that he needed to pay up for what he did. Apparently Mark Nigon realized that he had much more to lose. Not that giving up XXX is no big deal, but he should have given a lot more. When it comes down to it, you are more likely to have some backwards redneck hick, working as a pipe fitter trying to support three kids and a wife that has almost nothing to his name in the first place injure you than you are likely to have a millionaire do the same. Not that this goes across the board but poor people are usually poor because they are stupid and because they do stupid things and rich people are usually rich because they are smart and do smart things. Obviously this is a generalization but it seems to fit in this case.

Mark Nigon must of lost 100 pounds. We didn’t even recognize him when we first saw him. Apparently he is really sorry for what he did. He will be out of Jail on November 18th and back with his family so that he can finally teach his oldest daughter how to drive and drink a Colt 45 at the same time. He has to have a breathalyzer on his car for the next 5 years, and will have to notify any potential employers that he is a convicted felon. None of this seems to have anything to do with the pain that I will endure for the rest of my life because he didn’t feel it necessary to call for a ride home while intoxicated. Regardless, it is all over now, and my wife and I can finally try to move on with our lives.
