Just shows sueing has gone too far.

http://www.denverpost.com/Stories/0,141 ... 38,00.html

Here in cornwall (uk) we nearly lost the biggest agricultural event that happens in the year because of insurance and sueing, makes me sick.

What a horrible person, that lady is.

And what is it with the youth of today? Delivering free cookies to perfect strangers.
How dare they?

I'm sorry but that's just sick. I don't understand why that woman made such a big deal of it, when the gesture was obviously one of good nature and intent. So what, she got a little scared, when you realised there were COOKIES at the door, there was obvioulsy no threat to you or your family, relax and enjoy them! Wow. That's really sad.

You have GOT to be kidding! What a freaking woman. Why on earth would she make such a big deal about it, especially seeing that she was not alone? They already offered to pay her medical bill, sounds like she was just out for more cash. Nasty horrible woman.

i think the worst part of it isn't that she sued them, but that she WON! I mean really, how thick does a judge have to be to side with her?! Would HE have been scared of two teenage girls dropping free cookies on his porch? And I'm sorry, but to most young people, 10:30 isn't late.

What kills me, is she had her 18 year old daughter at home with her! WTH, I suppose her daughter was terrified, too? - 20 Bucks says her own kid hates her after this.

That is really sad. People will sue over anything and everything.

What a petty petty woman. She is so lame, and you know she was only out for more money since she wouldn't just accept the medical bills. What the heck kind of judge rules this in her favor too, he is crazy too

i heard about that on the radio. that's really pathetic. here in the US, they've changed the laws so that you have to pay taxes on whatever money you win in court. so lets say you win a lawsuit for 1 million, you automatically pay the court half, 500,000, then you pay lawyer fees of about 400,000, which leaves you about 100,000, which seriously decreases the effectiveness of frivolous lawsuits.
