    NY - aunt who sued 8yr old nephew over hug loses lawsuit

    New Yorker Jennifer Connell, who sued her eight-year-old nephew after he leapt at her to give her a loving hug and she fell and broke her wrist, has lost her lawsuit against him.

    Sean Tarala, now 12, appeared confused when he appeared in court. The young boy's mother died last year.

    The aunt showed up for his birthday party four years ago, and witnesses say he ran towards her shouting:

    "Auntie Jen, I love you," according to court testimony...
    The 54-year-old New York woman told the court she loved her nephew, but that he should be held responsible in the case.

    OMG. The accident had a serious impact on her social life, Connell says:

    She claimed her social life has taken a serious hit as well. "I was at a party recently, and it was difficult to hold my hors d'oeuvre plate," Connell said.
    Is anybody else heartbroken for that little boy who just lost his mom and has had to go through this?

    What a sickening attitude this woman has. I wish I could sue her for ruining my day.

    I am a bit confused as to why she would be suing a little boy, who would obviously have no assets. Was she really suing HIM or the father? The reason I ask is that if you were at someone's home and injured yourself due to something that was their fault, i.e. their stairs collapsed and you fell, or you slipped on ice in their driveway, or perhaps their dog knocked them down and caused a similar injury. Not comparing the little boy to a dog, but the boy is under the care of the parents, who would be ultimately responsible for his actions. So if she sustained an injury at their home, by something that was in their control, why wouldn't the parents be responsible?

    That said, her complaining about not being able to hold an hors d'oeuvre plate has to be one of the funniest things I have ever heard. The poor dear! LOL!

    P.S. I'd also like to hear why she was suing for so much money? Pain and suffering? If I were her, I may have gone after the parents to pay the medical bills, but nothing else.

    I agree. The sister probably has an estate of some value so sis wants her share - at this poor kid's expense. Gmab

    A Connecticut jury needed just 25 minutes Tuesday to decide against a Manhattan human resources manager who sued her own nephew for $127,000 in damages after he accidentally broke her wrist.
    Surprising that it took the jury that long to make a decision.

    I had to sign in just so I could add my disbelief. I feel like this is an ONION story! I can't even say what I want about auntie or I'll get kicked off WS for good. Gee whiz, I am stunned someone would be that greedy. Can I say I hope she slips on the ice this winter?

    I hope that young man continues to show his love to people that LOVE HIM BACK!

    I'm just wondering if she was afraid she would have to raise him?

    Let's see what this does for her social life.

    Honestly, who would want to associate with this woman. I sure wouldn't want her in my home, or in my car.

    "Jennifer Connell, 54, believes little Sean Tarala, now 12, should have known better than to jump into her arms as a means of welcoming her to his birthday party in 2011, ctpost.com reported Monday."

    http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.2394889



    What does she do, walk on her hands?

    “I live in Manhattan in a third-floor walk-up so it has been very difficult,” she said. “And we all know how crowded it is in Manhattan.”

    Poor little guy, loses his mom and gets sued by his aunt. So sad. I just cannot believe this woman. I am going to guess she doesn't have her own kids, and well, not surprised either. I sure hope this boys father gives him a lot of love. She should be sued for such a frivolous case
