Another Crazy Lawsuit-- Warlick and Ramsell Argue Over Bears Tickets
Once upon a time, Douglas Warlick and Donald Ramsell were friends. The two lawyers from a western suburb of Chicago, attended Bears games together for over twenty years.
Back in 1985, Warlick purchased four Bears season tickets in his name. Just four years ago, Ramsell began purchasing two of the tickets from Warlick in an "agreement" that the two friends struck up to split costs. No contract was signed nor anything written down.
The friendship began to go sour, and on May 30th of this year, Ramsell filed a lawsuit in court to formally obtain his half of the tickets.
Warlick, in a recent Chicago Tribune article, summed the situation up perfectly: "I'm still in shock -- that's so obnoxious, so immature," he said. "He could've just picked up the phone. I think 'sad' is an appropriate word for somebody who does something like that."
