Let’s sue that kid for everything she has!

A judge in NY has ruled that a 4 year old can be sued for negligence.

Citing cases dating back as far as 1928, a judge has ruled that a young girl accused of running down an elderly woman while racing a bicycle with training wheels on a Manhattan sidewalk two years ago can be sued for negligence.

4 year old on bike runs into elderly lady. Elderly lady falls and has to have surgery. Accident, right? I mean, what 4 year old would maliciously run down a nice old lady?
Not so, I guess. The family of the elderly lady is suing the 2 children that were racing their bikes and their mothers for negligence. What?? What are you going to win in judgement? Animal crackers and milk? It would be one thing if the suit was to cover surgery expenses or something. But it doesn’t appear that is what is driving this case.
Ah, the society we live in.

    I completely agree with your position on this, although, in the interest of fairness, it bears mentioning that the elderly woman died as a result of having to undergo the surgery.

    Hey, under the leadership of Obama, those animal crackers and milk are going to be in high demand!
