To: AtlasStalledThis type of situation has long been settled in civil law.
If you go to a contest such as a baseball game,or a hockey game you assume the risk of being struck with a ball or a puck.
This will be thrown out of court.
Kids will be kids.
Actually the catcher was returning the ball to the pitcher and, as often happens, the ball went errant.
This woman needs to stay home more often and let the kids play.

They didn?t have to say ?NJ? in the headline. It was obvious.
I wonder how many rocks she had to look under before the lawyer that accepted this case slithered out?

Maybe she has a face that looks like a pitcher?s glove.

She was sitting at a picnic table near the dugout...and then wonders why...duh, she got hit by the ball...

This obnoxious witch probably figured this was an easy payout but she is not thinking of the trauma she is putting this boy through. Putting an 11 year old through this over a risk she voluntarily took is lower than low.

Before we burn her at the stake. Some insurance policies require you to sue the other party before they will pay you under your own coverage.
Could that be the case here?
