ST is happy to report that justice has prevailed in the case of The Captain v. His Former Boss. The Massachussetts judge handling the appeal has issued her ruling. She states (and I basically quote), "You can't ask a man to be on duty when he is off duty." EXACTLY!
Look - it was the greatest hearing in history. The employer's representative was clueless. I felt bad for him. I felt like I was waging a war of wits against an unarmed man. But I was relentless. Y'all know how I can be. This sh*t was personal!
When asked why the Captain was discharged, the employer's representative said: "He injured his arm and then the new guy ran the yacht aground." Yep - that's what he said.
The judge was astounded. Speechless. I was giving my client the thumbs up.
To make a long story short (if it's not already too late), the judge echoed everything we've been saying for the past 7 months: sometimes rich people need a kick in the ass.
Anyway, the Captain won. The Captain is cashing his checks right now.
