A fifty four year old white woman sued her own nephew because he broke her arm at his eighth birthday party. Sean Tarala jumped into her arms allegedly out of excitement and accidentally broke his aunt's arm. This event transpired in March of two thousand eleven.
October of two thousand fifteen a Connecticut jury ruled against her. Jennifer Connell was seeking one hundred twenty seven thousand dollars in damages. However, in two thousand eleven she admitted this was an accident.
She decided to file a lawsuit against her own nephew, Sean Tarala, in two thousand thirteen in a Bridgeport, Connecticut court. Allegedly, this boy is actually a son of one of her cousins. She claims she was injured and later required injuries.
Supposedly, she never told Sean extent of her injuries. Jennifer Connell is quoted as writing in her lawsuit:
“The injuries, losses and harms to the plaintiff were caused by the negligence and carelessness of the minor defendant in that a reasonable eight years old under those circumstances would know or should have known that a forceful greeting such as the one delivered by the defendant to the plaintiff could cause the harms and losses suffered by the plaintiff.”
On October thirteen two thousand fifteen a six person jury unanimously ruled against her. This twelve year old boy actually appeared in court. According to Connecticut law, you cannot sue an insurance company, but must name an individual.
Her excuse perhaps is that she wanted to receive compensation for her medical bills. Adding insult to injury, pun intended, Sean's mother, Lisa Tarala met her demise last year. This white woman Jennifer Connell still went through with this lawsuit.
Jennifer is single, not married, and never procreated any children. No wonder why she is single and childless.
