In insurance law news tonight, the Second Circuit recently ruled that autoerotic asphyxiation (you know, as in "temporarily hanging yourself so you get that way cool head rush when you beat off") qualifies as an accident, not self-inflicted death, for purposes of paying an insurance settlement to the dead dude's mom.

Amusing to see that there is already a body of law on this issue, and that one of the main case precedents came out of the Ninth Circuit. Even more amusing is the affidavit by Dead Dude's Dad regarding Dead Dude's masturbation habits at the age of 12 or 13. Just what I always wanted MY parents testifying about in open court.
