Word to the Wise

Don't ever, ever, ever get life insurance--or any other kind of insurance--through Western & Southern Life. They're complete idiots.

Apparently once you assign your policy to someone else, you are not allowed to get information related to your prior ownership of that policy. That makes absolutely no sense.

Yes, that's my practice area...

So here I am at work, reading a case for a petition... In a footnote (hi, Professor Bradley! I still read them!), the court in the case notes that the Medicaid Act has been called one of the "most completely impenetrable tests within human experience" and "dense reading of the most tortuous kind." State v. Hammans, 870 N.E.2d 1071, 1075 (Ind. Ct. App. 2007) (quoting Johnson v. Guhl, 166 F.Supp. 2d 42, 46 (D.N.J. 2001)).

Hahaha, yes. It's true. I should pull out this quote every time someone suggests that my area of law is interesting. While that's nice to say, very encouraging, you know, it's completely inaccurate. My area of law is important, and it's challenging, but it's not particularly interesting. Exciting, maybe (to nerds like me who like statutes and codes and such), because it's an ever-changing area of law, but interesting? Um. No.
