8-year-old New York Boy is Sued by His Aunt for a “Careless” Hug
I laughed so hard and is probably my favorite lawsuit I have read.
“Four years ago Jennifer Connell attended the 8th birthday party of her nephew, Sean Tarala. Apparently, Tarala was so enthused at the presence of his “Auntie Jen” that he leaped into her arms. The jump caused Connell to fall to the ground, breaking her wrist.
The next present Connell gave Tarala to unwrap was a $127,000 lawsuit.
Connell named the boy as the defendant in a lawsuit for the cost of her legal bills, claiming her injuries were caused by Tarala’s “negligence and carelessness,” arguing that the 8-year old birthday boy “should have known that a forceful greeting such as the one delivered by the defendant to the plaintiff could cause the harms and losses suffered by the plaintiff.”
