How to Destroy Your Online Repuation in 3....2.....1; Litigious Asshole Edition

A Manhattan woman wants a Connecticut jury to hold her 8-year-old nephew accountable for his youthful exuberance during his birthday party.

Jennifer Connell claims the boy, Sean Tarala of Westport, acted unreasonable when he leaped into her arms, causing her to fall on the ground and break her wrist four years ago. This week Connell is asking a six-member Superior Court jury to find the boy liable for his actions.

She is seeking $127,000 from the boy, who she described as always being “very loving, sensitive,” toward her. The boy is the only defendant in the case.
The case is being heard in Bridgeport, CT. And yes, this is a no-shitter, the case no. is FBT-CV-13-6033608-S. Here's hoping that the jury comes back with something along the lines of "We find for Defendant and Plaintiff should suck it, bitch.
“I was at a party recently, and it was difficult to hold my hors d’oeuvre plate,” she said.
Having trouble holding a hors-d'eouvre plate is going to pale to being known far and wide as "the NYC asshole woman who sued her young nephew."

My guess is that she (and her attorneys) thought that they'd make a claim, the kid's dad's homeowner's insurance would quietly settle and that would be the end of it. Turned out to be a bad move.

She lost.

The Manhattan aunt who sued her young nephew for breaking her wrist when he excitedly leaped into her arms at his birthday party won’t be getting a cent, a jury ruled Tuesday.
The Connecticut panel deliberated just 25 minutes before unanimously ruling in favor of the nephew, Sean Tarala, now 12, who caused the injury to aunt Jennifer Connell when he was just 8 years old in 2011, according to court papers.
