Jimmy Hoffs (Character)
from "L.A. Law" (1986)
Jimmy Hoffs: This is it? Your fancy office?
Victor Sifuentes: Shut up.
Jimmy Hoffs: Oh, I can see why you left the PD's office, look this a desk and a rug.
Victor Sifuentes: So, come on. You really brought suit against this liquor company?
Jimmy Hoffs: It's a good cause of action, Victor. 40-year-old dentist, moderate to occasional drinker, never to excess, cirrhosis of the liver, dead.
Victor Sifuentes: And you can prove that it was the booze that killed him?
Jimmy Hoffs: I've got to forensic pathologists who can prove it. And it gets better. 18 years the guy drank only one thing. Nolsten blended, which means I don't have to argue any market share theory, I can go after an individual manufacturer.
Victor Sifuentes: Jimmy, you, you know that nobody has ever nailed a liquor company for this.
Jimmy Hoffs: That's because all the previous cases involved chronic alcoholics. My guy was a moderate drinker. I've got enough character witnesses to fill Dodgers stadium. No pre-existing liver condition, no comparative negligence, no assumption of the risk, but we've got a widow with two children, this is a perfect test case.
Victor Sifuentes: It's perfect. So why do you need me?
