Can I sue myself?


A text question from a listener with a sense of humor.


Attorney Tom Olsen: Chrissy, we got a text and I was going to have you read it to me. It's long and complicated. Read it to us. The text question.

Chrissy: Can I sue myself?

Attorney Tom Olsen: That's the extent of it. Four words there. Can I sue myself? It makes me remember years ago, there was a contest done. The contest was, submit to us what the ultimate question is. The winner of that contest was, why can't I tickle myself? I always remember that. That's what it makes me think of. Why can't I sue myself?

Chrissy: Same thing.

Attorney Tom Olsen: Honestly, I don't think there's anything within the law that would stop you from suing yourself. I don't think that it'd be John Doe versus John Doe. Why not? Get a judgment against John Doe. Order John Doe to stay away from him.

Chrissy: I have to say that's the first time.

Attorney Tom Olsen: First time?

Chrissy: Yes, the first time.

Attorney Tom Olsen: Been a lawyer for 37 years, nobody's ever asked me that question before.

Chrissy: There you go. There's another first.

Attorney Tom Olsen: There's always something new and different every day in this law practice.

Chrissy: Another first.

Attorney Tom Olsen: We don't know what the texter was getting at, why they would ask us such a question? Maybe just to be funny. Hey, you made us laugh. Thank you for that. We appreciate it.

Chrissy: You made us laugh and gave us a first.
