    Can you imagine prying open the doors and seeing a brick wall? I would have seriously freaked out.

    The sign at the end was the kicker.

    That's terrible. You have to wonder, didn't anybody see that he was in the elevator by looking at the security cameras?

    According to the article he got a low 6 figure settlement in a lawsuit.

    Yeah, I read that too. If he's not allowed to comment on how much he gets, why is he allowed to say that? Thought that sounded kinda fishy. Who knows though... With as much money as some have received for ridiculous claims, I would think he would be entitled to 7 or 8 figures.

    Reporters and lawyers have found ways to ask questions and get ballpark figures without requiring the person they are interviewing to actually comment.

    After reading the entire article, this guy had a BAD lawyer. 4 years and not demanding a jury trail is horrible. A good lawyer would have requested a jury trail ASAP, and the defendants could only settle or go to trial.

    This guy had a great case, especially with the security cameras on the entire time and NO ONE watching them. BAD LAWYER.

    I find it hard to believe nobody saw, wonder if some bored security guards thought it was funny to watch

    This January, I was trapped in a dark elevator for 30 minutes by myself and the fire department had to get me out. It was not pleasant. Can't imagine 41 hours.

The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    At least this guy still had lights. WOW, can you imagine 41 hours of total darkness. That would drive lots of folks to the brink of insanity!

    I agree, very bad lawyer. I can't imagine being trapped for almost two days.
