Posted on 10/14/2010 6:32:57 PM PDT by gusopol3
It's a classic David and Goliath story: A white-shoe law firm staffed with hundreds of D.C.'s most-powerful lawyers has moved to shutter a hamburger eatery on the grounds that the lawyers didn't like the aroma of cooking meat wafting into their offices.
So far, Goliath is winning.

Burgers smell better than lawyers.
I’m hoping the lawyers lose, and they’re all vegans.
Why didn’t the prestigious b@st@rds offer to buy the ‘burger joint out?
What if I blast smoke at your house all day? Would you buy me out?
Which was there first?
I can see a law firm moving in then bitching about it.
That actually happened at my office. And whenever the company President called and complained, they seemed to turn up the smoke. After a while it was kind of annoying. Oh, they went out of business two weeks ago.
If it was a Five Guys, it’s war! The Red Robin and Applebee’s smell pretty greasy from about a mile away on Friday and Saturday nights so I can see what the lawyers’ gripes are—but they shouldn’t have the power to shut down legally operating businesses.
Its not a funny matter.
first, it is obvious collusion between members of the legal profession, and second this is a slippery slope that will allow any law firm to sue in any number of cases on point.
How would you, as any business owner, like to buy written permission from every lawyer who happens to start a business around you?
I can’t STAND lawyers - most of them should simply be run out of town or see the bitter end of a rope.
A lawyer in Wilmington sued the owner of the land next door because he constructed a house that could be seen from the lawyer’s house.
In other words, the David vs. Goliath thing might play well on Oprah.
Lawyers prefer the smell of blood to cooked meat. Especially the smell of blood wafting out of the back of speeding ambulances.
Layers make excellent little Hitlers.
One: It isn't a house it is a law firm. Two: Who was there first? The scumbag lawyers(they are all scumbags in my book, right below politicians) or the burger joint?
If you “blasted smoke” at me, I’d sue you. If you were running a legitimate eatery, I’d live with it ... or buy you out. Might even buy a burger from you now and then.
OK, so the burger joint loses. They’re gone.
Next, some muslims move in. Starts cooking whatever crap muslims cook.
NOW lets see what them lawyers do!
sued by the property-management company of property A, in violation of citations issued by the city, and apparently being sued by property-management company B (where the restaurant is located) in order to break the lease (because of the violations)...
Which have no bearing on this filing.
This is a hate crime against burger flippers. Class warfare too.
You said it!! MMMMMM Grilled Burgers and Grilled Onions two of the best smells around........
