This is possibly the most vain and cold hearted lawsuit the Judiciary Report has ever covered. The mere fact that Connell sued her bereaved, underage nephew is cruel. The poor boy had to appear in court with his dad and "looked confused." This child is party to a lawsuit and he hasn't even hit puberty yet. As he gets older and realizes the gravity of what his aunt has done, he is going to be devastated. A jury has correctly rejected the lawsuit. Connell needs to drop this terrible, pretentious lawsuit altogether and take one for the team.
