Yup. Exactly what it says. It happened Tuesday (Oct 13). Read on…
This New York woman was in court on Tuesday after suing her 12-year-old nephew for allegedly breaking her wrist with an enthusiastic hug… on his 8th birthday. She was suing him for $127 000 dollars, claiming her injury made it difficult to walk up the three flights of stairs to her Upper East Side apartment, and that she had trouble holding her hors d’oeuvres plate at a recent party.
Her lawsuit claimed he was negligent in jumping into her arms because a reasonable 8-year-old would know better.
You’ll be glad to know a Connecticut jury took just 25 minutes to find in favor of the nephew.
