Cody Franson - Why Doesn't His Lawyer Want a Jury?
Cody Franson plays defense for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
And last season he earned two millions dollars playing hockey.
Cody Franson was involved in a car accident in July 2008.
And his case is going to trial in June 2014.
Franson's lawyers recently went to court and tried to get a BC Supreme Court judge to rule that his case shouldn't be decided by a jury.
Doesn't Cody Franson want justice to be dispensed by a jury of his peers?
Franson's lawyers argued in court that the issues involved in assessed the income loss claim of an NHL player are too complicated for a jury to understand.
Or is there something here that know one is talking about ( the elephant in the room)?
You see, I'm not Franson's lawyer.
But if I was, I'd be concerned that the good folks sitting on a jury ( the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker) may have little sympathy for a guy who's pulling down $2,000,000 per year.
I'd be worried that the merits of Franson's case might not "cut much ice" with jurors who likely earn a small fraction of what Franson does.
If you ask me. That's what's behind all this legal wrangling.
You see there's alot of strategic considerations underlying whether it would be better for your ICBC injury claim to decided by a judge or a jury.
