School To Pay $2 Million In Marshmallow Choking

School to pay $2 million in marshmallow choking death

""This case was never about money," said the family's attorney, Francis Patrick Murphy. "This case has been about getting the message across to America that dangerous games should not be played in school, with or without supervision.""

Then why $2million?

"Casey's parents had argued that Glenview School District and teacher Kevin Dorken were responsible for the girl's death because Dorken, who had been supervising the game, was out of the room while the children were stuffing marshmallows in their mouths to see who could hold the most and still say the words "chubby bunny.""

How is it the teachers fault that the kid choked? Don't kids and parents have ANY responsibility in their actions?

What a joke.

Must resist urge to do the obvious "signed by" post...............

This case further proves the need for some real tort reform in this country. Folks are too sue happy and will sue over the slightest things.

We do an event similar to this at my Middle School and never once have we had anyone choking. There have been people that have had 20 and still haven't choked.
