Maybe I'm reading this all wrong, but this guy sounds like a real jerk. 8-Year-Old Named In Ski Lawsuit An 8-year-old and his father are being sued by a skier who says the boy collided with him at Beaver Creek last winter. David Pfahler, 60 of Allentown, Penn., says he tore a tendon in his shoulder in the crash with Scott Swimm. He and his wife have filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking damages over $75,000 for physical therapy, vacation time and other expenses. He's suing now over a collision from last year? And the accident was supposedly bad enough that he's asking for $75K, but the little kid didn't get hurt? Puh-lease.
