This is the kind of shit that is wrong in this country
A New Jersey woman who was struck in the face with a baseball at a Little League game is suing the young catcher who threw it.
Elizabeth Lloyd is seeking more than $150,000 in damages to cover medical costs stemming from the incident at a Manchester Little League game two years ago. She’s also seeking an undefined amount for pain and suffering.
Seriously?? She and her husband go to a Little League game, she’s doesn’t pay attention to what is going on around her and now she is suing an 11 year old boy?
The lawsuit filed April 24 alleges Migliaccio’s errant throw was intentional and reckless, “assaulted and battered” Lloyd and caused “severe, painful and permanent” injuries.
A second count alleges Migliaccio’s actions were negligent and careless through “engaging in inappropriate physical and/or sporting activity” near Lloyd. She continues to suffer pain and anguish, incur medical expenses and has been unable to carry out her usual duties and activities, the lawsuit says.
So which was it? Did he intentionally hit you with the ball, or was he negligent? Can’t really be both can it? Also, if it was intentional, why did he do it? Were you heckling him? If so, seems to me he should counter sue for the emotional distress you inflicted on him with your verbal abuse.
Oh, and what good lawsuit doesn’t involve some sex
And Lloyd’s husband, in a third count, is suing for the loss of “services, society and consortium” of his wife. They’ve demanded a jury trial.
Yeah, I’d love to be on that jury.
