The Feel-Good Story of the Day

Telemarketer calls lawyer at 5 A.M. with prerecorded pitch. Lawyer sues in small claims court. Lawyer wins $500 from telemarketer.

Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Hurrah for Small Claims court!

The lawyer's site -- How to Make A Telemarketer Cry -- discusses the incident and also includes some great web tools, like reverse lookup directories and real property databases, plus great information on the Do Not Call directory, tips on how to treat telemarketers, plus other juicy inside stuff. My favorite "thing I learned today" is that it is ILLEGAL TO CALL CELL PHONES with telemarketing pitches. Since my home phone is a cell phone, I will either 1) never be bothered by those leeches again or 2) be able to sue them for $500 or more if they do.
