Earlier this week, a lawsuit against the city of Boston was resolved. A couple injured in a car crash were suing the city for pain and suffering. They wanted $7,000, and despite the jury faulting the city, the panel declined to award them any money.
This wouldn’t be news, except for one odd little fact: the foreman of the jury was John Forbes Kerry, the junior senator from Massachusetts and the 2004 Democratic nominee for president.
In retrospect, the verdict was obvious. I can just hear Kerry telling the judge: “I actually voted for the plaintiffs, before I voted against them.”
