Well this was an intresting article I just found on Sky News, 2 Girls were sued because they baked cookies and gave them to several people in their 'hood.

I mean come on making them pay over $900 in damages for being nice what the hell is the world coming to?

http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30200-13296330,00.html

I just can't believe that this actually went to court and still went against them, its almost as bad as that guy suing AA because he fell over in Rome having flown with them!

What a joke. Wonder who the old bag was that sued them?

And that judge - here, I use the term lightly - is out of his mind . . . .

And people wonder why young folk are screwed up these days . . .  Yeah sure

This is the worst that America has to offer. It's too bad the old hag didn't actually have a heart attack and spare these poor girls the hassle. These people make me sick.  Angry

HOLY CRAP THIS HAPPENED IN DURANGO?!!!!

Yeah I haven't heard anything about this from any of the local sources, not from Campus radio or otherwise, and not seen anything about it in the papers. Personally I thought everyone in this town had a level head about them, guess not.

As stupid beyond words this old lady was, THAT was not necessary. I imagine you are used to saying things like that.  Smile

That's all that was discussed on KOA today... Several callers said they're going to do several knock and runs on the lady's door this week.  Smile Anyway, you'd think that this is the actions of an "old hag", but the woman is actually 43. The radio station today started a collection to give $900 to the family. They raised it all by the end of the show. I think the whole motivation behind of this has also been $$$. This woman saw an opportunity, knows how the court systems are today, and tried to take them for as much as she could.

Between this and the dumb-ass CU Professor people are probably starting to think that Coloradians are freally -'ed up...

Utterly ridiculous. How can the lady possibly have proved that she suffered emotion distress? And while small claims court is the bush leagues as far as judges are concerned, still...

Judge Doug Walker said he did not think the girls had acted maliciously but told them 10.30pm was late at night for them to be out.

Wow sounds like I remember my dad LOL they are 18 years old!!

The lady did this: "She went to hospital the next day thinking she had suffered a heart attack."....NEXT day? If she was that concerned, she should have called 911 right then!

IMO the judge did the right thing.

The 2 girls repeatedly banged on the door and didnt answer to the womans call of "whos there", to her it could have been anyone banging on the door 10pm at night.
If you knock on someones door and they ask who it is any "normal" person would have said what they wanted or who it was, instead these 2 girls didnt answer and went away, the woman could be suffering from Anxiety or panic attacks, a woman on her own having her door banged 10pm at night not knowing who it is.
Also what are the girls doing going around selling cookies, its illegal as they dont say what the "product" contains..what if someones allergic to nuts or something, they could have been sued or been brought for manslaughter charges if the person died, despite wether they were being nice or not.

Planespotterx: Fortunately, you're the minority here . . . . and you should re-read the story . . . they weren't selling cookies . . . let me share a small quote from the article for you . . . . by leaving her home-baked cookies. . . . they were just being nice. . . read the article again.

Ya know, the lady could have called 911 . . . let the cops come . . . since "I are 1" and if I'd shown up at the door, seen the cookies, I'd have laughed my ass off.

The judge, well he's in need of a sanity check himself. First of all, telling these legal adults where they ought to be at 10:30pm is bull. Second, even finding that the case had merit to even get on the docket is amazing! It should have been tossed without a hearing.

IMHO - it's all about "can I sue these people and get some $$$$". Welcome to the American Legal Systemm.

Hell, I'd be the least bit surprised if the lady saw this she'd sue me for slander . . . . . . laughable.

Shheeeeez . . . .

Bet that's the last time she get her driveway shoveled . . .

yea my bad ANCFlyer, but still doesnt explain why they just knocked and ran off, even if it was a surprise.
As for the judge telling them where they should be at 10.30pm, well thats about as silly as the whole argument over the incident in the first place.
But still, you cant do/say anything without offending someone these days, you cant even have a genuine "accident" these days without someone sueing for tripping over a pavement or walking into a tree, this world deserve a Darwin award in itself.
