I'm not too sure. This is hard to pick sides. If she sued for money, then she's a greedy buttwipe. But it seems she didn't but went along to sue the child anyway. But that child has to live with the fact they killed someone. That's a HUGE weight to have on your shoulders.

@jtrebowski. That's still not really suffering. The parent's don't have to pay a dime, and most likely will be able to counter-sue for the lawyer fees. If they counter-sue, theres almost no way they lose, so they don't lose money, and they don't lose a lot of time because their legal counsel does all their work.

Really not much of a pain in the ass.

If there is an actual case of Malpractice or Negligence, they should be sued. The big problem is that everyone wants a "Jackpot" ruling for every little thing they can think of.

I agree that the child shouldn't be sues but the parents should be held responsible for the actions of minors in their care.

@jtrebowski The tort reform I am talking about is along the lines of stopping ambulance chasers and people suing just to see if they can win even thought there is no evidence of Malpractice. Many alleged malpractice cases are settled out of court even if there wasn't any malpractice due to a settlement being cheaper than fighting it in court. If there was a penalty (such as having to pay the cost of the defense) for both the Plaintiff and the Prosecuting Attorney if they lose in a case of Frivolous Litigation it would help prevent many cases from clogging up our overworked court system. And hopefully cure the U.S. of the sue-happy state is is currently in.

@Nvet: Seriously? If some doctor negligently causes harm or death to your loved one, you want the government to determine how much his/her life is worth? wow. That's cold.

@monkey: I doubt dealing with a lawsuit is nothing less than a major pain in the ass, especially when you have mean right-wingers blaming your little girl for a death.

Yet another case that proves that the US needs tort reform. Which would help in more ways than people realize. It would drastically reduce insurance premiums for everyone from homeowners to Doctors, and hopefully lower costs in the long run...

@suicism. She's being held responsible for negligence, which caused her death. Murder is a criminal case while this is a civil torts case. Two different things there.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but - if a six-year-old girl can be held responsible due to her maturity and intelligence (at the age of four, no less) when it comes to murder, then couldn't a 14-year-old boy when it comes to sex?

@jtrebowski. And how would the parents suffer? They won't have to pay a dime. And if their lawyer is halfway decent, he'd initiate a counter-suit to pay for his fees.

ok this has to be said, drat YOU to all the non-nice individuals that sue everyone else for every damn thing they can think of.

America is officially not worth a good god damn anymore and it is because of poo like this.

@ Monkey: maybe that's the idea. They may not be after money, but just trying to make the parents suffer. If that's the case, it's just a matter of being vindictive.

elkingo said: "How do you see this as frivolous? There was medical bills incurred, and pain and suffering."

I don't believe they're suing for the bills or P & S. They're suing over her death, in which case the argument could be made to go after the doctor instead, because he /she only kept her alive THREE MONTHS!!! With that being said, I was only bringing up "frivolous lawsuits" because conservatives are notorious for whining about the need for tort reform.

The bitch ass judge should be hanged for being a faggot.
Also, she probably sued them because she knew she was gonna die anyways. She just wanted to hurt someone because she wasn't going to be there to take the blame.
What a c*nt.

It's funny. Most people in here are assuming that the lady is going to get the money from the parents. However, Parents are generally not held liable for their children's torts, including negligence. I reviewed the suit and she didn't sue the parents at all for negligence, only the child. Whoever her lawyer was seriously misstepped, because she won't be able to receive any money from just the suit against the child, even if she wins.

i think just knowing they accedently killed someone is punishment enough i think they should just be left alone before they are scarred for life

@mkkloote: Where do you draw the line on whether a life is valuable or not? Betty White is 88. Do we run her over and say "Oh Well. She lived a good life, had fame and fortune so nobody can complain"???

How about on the other end of the spectrum? We run over a toddler and say "Well he was from a broken home, wasn't contributing to society, wouldnt have amounted to much so Oh Well".

Your argument gets you into areas where we (and the courts) don't need to go. Was it a human life? What contributed to its suffering or e
nd? That's what needs to be dealt with.

@elkingo: Criminal charges are brought by the prosecutor on behalf of 'the people'. Civil suits are brought by the person suffering the damage.

@almightybob: Many places the parents can only be sued for the WILLFULL misconduct of the child. In cases where it is not willfull, ie a 'true accident' the parents could not be held liable and therefore the children are sued. As a practical matter, they should all be sued and let the judge figure it out.

@jtrebowski

How do you see this as frivolous? There was medical bills incurred, and pain and suffering.
