    It looks like he's looking for compensation here. The defendent scoffed at him and now he got sued.

    Amazing how well people can become douchebags when there's the potential for some money and publicity.

    I say let this go to court. Then, Morice should produce all the people he saved, and put them on the stand, one by one, to spend a good half hour or so each telling their harrowing Katrina tale.

    Then, when thats all done, Lyons will have to pay court fees. Then as he leaves, get pelted with rotten apples.

    Having said that though, the real villain here is the Insurance company...

    I can see where he has a legal right to sue but there is also the morality of that decision to consider. Sure I am legaly entitled to money but the act saved the lives of others.

    I personaly wouldn't have a problem with the guy taking my boat given the circumstances.

    I suspect the cause of this litigation hinges on insurance:

    Either the owner of the boat didn't have it insured, or the insurance company decided not to pay out.

    The guy stole his boat, it's not like he "borrowed" it and then returned it in the condition he found it in. Yea, it's cool that he saved some people, but it isn't cool that he stole the guy's boat. Also, why did he have to steal three boats? Just one wouldn't do or did he destroy the other 2 boats to get the job done. This guy's out a boat just the same as the store owners who got looted are out of the lost merchandise. Good deed or not, legally that guy did the wrong thing.

    Oh come on. I can't beleive anyone would actually defend the guy suing here. The guy took the boat and saved peoples fucking lives with it. It's not like the boat would have even been there when the guy returned to his ruined home.

    What the fuck is wrong with people?!

    Mark Morice deserves a fucking medal. He "steals" a boat, and uses it to save 200 people's lives, and this sack of shit is SUING him for it? Laugh the fucking case out of court.

    I don't think any jury in the NO area will convict this guy.
