Roy Ortiz, an illegal immigrant, is suing the firefighters who saved his life. An attorney for Ortiz recently filed court documents related to the incident which occurred last September. His client was trapped in his car during a flash flood on US 287 in Colorado.

 

The Ortiz lawsuit names first responders from the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Westminster dive team, as well as North Metro Fire Rescue District firefighters. On September 12, a vehicle driven by Roy Ortiz flipped upside down after being washed off the roadway by rushing flood waters.

According to court documents, it took the firefighters about two hours to rescue Ortiz. The man is now claiming that the North Metro Fire Rescue District was negligent in their duties because he “should” have been extracted from his car more quickly.

 

 

Why is Ortiz suing the firefighters who rescued him from probable death? “Well, I’m happy. I’m really happy to be alive. But, I’m looking for some help with my bills. I don’t have the money to pay,” he said.

 

 

 

What are your thoughts on this story? I think it's pretty damn despicable that anyone would humor this case. The lawyer really is a scumbag piece of sh*t and his client is no better. Apparently he's seeking $500,000 in damages from the very same people who ensured that his fat ass is still breathing.

An anatomy of filing a case against those who helped you? Also he's an illegal immigrant who crossed into American border, how is that possible to file a lawsuit in a country not of his origin? He should be the deported back to where he belongs and never get any reparations from his damages.

What a pathetic pos. Unfortunately this happens way too much. People will look for any opportunity to grab a quick lawsuit and make the big bucks.

This is a f*cking joke, life will teach them (he and his lawyer) a lesson sooner or later.

He probably doesn't have a leg to stand on anyway. It was an emergency situation; if they spent 2 hours trying to get him out, they were obviously doing their best to keep him alive and in one piece and not like they were just standing there having a coffee break. It's even more damming against him with statements like that about 'bills to pay' if it's true.

 

Also, was there any reason to highlight that he's an immigrant? (Not pointing at you OP) - If you want to make a quick buck like this you're pretty much a scumbag, and they come in any nationality.

I think the part of him being an illegal immigrant is important. Because it just speaks to how ridiculous this is. He ismt even in the country legally and thinks he can win a lawsuit of this nature?

You would think that after being outed as being an illegal immigrant he would immediately be deported. Guess not.

This.

 

Is it even possible for a non-American citizen to sue American emergency services? I'm not too sure, seeing as my knowledge on lawsuits the like is pretty limited, but it sounds like it wouldn't fly in court, what with him being here illegally and all.

Well I think there is some kind of process for deporting someone. So that process is probably underway

Apparently this isn't something new.

 

16 illegal immigrants sued a rancher who detained them at gunpoint for trespassing on his property while crossing the border.

f*ck this guy. What a f*ckin' lowlife.

 

And if you know anything about the US, you know the Republicans are gonna have a field day with this. A leeching illegal immigrant suing a hardworking American hero? Can't really blame them if they go nuts over this on Fox News. But of course, they'll completely ignore the real issues and focus entirely on how awful illegal immigrants are.

To place a lawsuit against people who saved his life is likely the lowest thing one can do, I would be willing to bet it is a ploy to get citizenship.....knowing Colorado has one of the most lax immigration laws in the entire United States of Amercia. It makes so damn angry.... I'm going to leave it at that for reasons of keeping this on topic and to avoid a stupid argument

Wait a second and hold the ticket line...are you guys seriously speaking ill of an illegal immigrant trying to benefit financially on the back of a possible premature retirement of an emergency serviceman doing his job? Goddam right wing xenophobic racists...

The question is, have any of those lawsuits won by illegal aliens? If it does, correct me if I'm misleading.

If everybody was allowed to live anywhere they wanted the system would sink. The solution would be fixing the sh*tty countries where immigrants normally come from so they don't have to leave them.

Lawyers are in the business of 'helping' people. So you can't blame him.
Lawyers, Insurance companies, politicians all in league to make money for themselves and their stockholders. Stockholders means you.

As for the illegal alien. Well, that President Obama's problem, and the Legislature for buying votes by letting known illegals stay.

How about Detention Camps, like Roosevelt established for the Japanese. Build them in New Mexico, Arizona, and West Texas deserts. Complete with Airports and Railway Stations. Maybe add workhouses so they can make themselves useful at 67¢ an hour until they are deported? [Work Makes People Free.]

As long as the U.S. of A. is a free country, we will allow this sort of thing.

I don't understand why people who break federal law like that and are now fugitives are given preferential treatment. Somehow I doubt they'd be as hospitable to someone who broke out of prison or robbed a bank. I'm not saying all illegal immigrants are bad people, but they still broke the law. It's almost like a slap to the face for people who come here the legal way and are damned by being lumped in with that crowd. I guess I can be more lenient with the children of illegal immigrants, they should be allowed to stay under strict stipulations.

Nor are the republicans so don't pretend that the same allegations aren't levelled at them too.
