Motorcycle plaintiff wasn't on the up and up. He had a scheme going to create a paper trail of dollars and was shuffling it all around to come out with getting someone to fix his bike, drive his bike, get his money back from fixing his bike while keeping his bike, use inflated paper trail for his trial, get money from the trial. He got an inflated estimate (which I think he wanted, again for the paper trail), then shopped it around to get someone to pick and choose how to fix it cheaper. Then spent money on those shops that check other people's work (paper trail) so he could go after the person who fixed the bike exactly like he wink wink really wanted it fixed ie cheaper but with a higher paper trail. Plaintiff was a fast talking double talk scammer. Yeah, he was right about he wasn't double dipping, which JJ finally got but he was playing a where's the ball under the shell carnival game con. It started when he jumped the gun to get his bike fixed before the settlement of the accident case.
My brain hurts from this episode.
eta I looked at the link for bail, even watched the little video (of course they used a grandma in a pink robe with a cane cartoon as the person being called from jail, haha) and all you need to know is that You Never Bail Someone Out Of Jail! NEVER
eta two After market parts doesn't mean you get used parts. It means you use a generic part. You can get a Chevy fuel pump from the Chevy parts department at the dealership and also get the generic fuel pump from the Chevy parts department at the dealership. You can get a name brand part from NAPA and also the NAPA equivalent part for the Chevy. Insurance companies go with after market prices for repairs.If you want Chevy parts, you pay the difference. And that was part of his paper trail con, getting name brand prices while wink wink "can you fix it cheaper for me" charade.
eta three If this effin nat doesn't stop buzzing around my face I am going to trash my living room trying to squash the bastard. Sorry, it has led to a bunch of edits on this post.
