This is just pretty nutty to read:

This is the passage that sums it up:

"At some point in the race, they struck an 87-year-old woman named Claire Menagh, who was walking in front of the building and, according to the complaint, was “seriously and severely injured,” suffering a hip fracture that required surgery. She died three months later of unrelated causes.

Her estate sued the children and their mothers, claiming they had acted negligently during the accident. In a response, Juliet’s lawyer, James P. Tyrie, argued that the girl was not “engaged in an adult activity” at the time of the accident — “She was riding her bicycle with training wheels under the supervision of her mother” — and was too young to be held liable for negligence."

I don't know...I mean I have a four and a five year old, and I don't see how suing them would be anything more than counterproductive. That said, if they were under the supervision of the parents, well where the hell were they?

Just too litigious in my book though.

Happy Halloween everybody.
