Woman Sues Her 12-Year-Old Nephew Over A Hug That Broke Her Wrist Complaining She Can't Hold Her Hors D'oeuvre Plate Anymore

Tough Family!

Jennifer Connell

A New York human resources manager, Jennifer Connell, has sued her 12-year-old nephew for enthusiastically jumping into her arms in welcoming her to his birthday party. He leapt into her arms and stated, "Auntie Jen, I love you!" To make matters worse, the 12-year-old, who has been sued by his own aunt for $127,000 is dealing with the death of his mother. His vain aunt complained in the lawsuit that the broken wrist has, "Made it difficult to hold my hors d'oeuvre plate."

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.


New York woman sues 12-year-old nephew over hug that broke her wrist 

Tuesday 13 October 2015 15.27 BST - A Manhattan human resources manager is suing her 12-year-old nephew for leaping into her arms when he welcomed her to his eighth birthday party. The aunt, Jennifer Connell, claims her nephew acted unreasonably when his exuberant greeting caused her to fall and break her wrist in 2011, the Westport News reported from the courthouse on Monday.
She is seeking $127,000 in damages from the boy, whose mother died last year. Westport News also reported that the 12-year-old appeared confused as he sat in the courtroom with his father. Connell reportedly testified that she loves her nephew, whom she described as always being “very loving, sensitive” toward her...

Of the damage done, Connell testified that she did not complain at the time, but she said her life had been “very difficult” since the injury because of “how crowded it is in Manhattan”. “I was at a party recently, and it was difficult to hold my hors d’oeuvre plate,” she reportedly said.

Jennifer Connell sued in Bridgeport Superior Court for $127,000, saying the little boy did not behave reasonably when he leapt into her arms at his 8th birthday celebration. The six-member jury found the boy was not liable for the injury suffered by Connell, 54, of New York City, the Connecticut Post is reporting...

On Friday, the boy, now 12, appeared confused as he sat with his father in a courtroom in Bridgeport, the state’s largest city, the Connecticut Post reported. The boy’s mother died last year and a listed phone number couldn't be found for the youngster's father, Michael Terala, according to The Associated Press.
