Lawsuits

I saw this at Overlawyered today:

Having decided to cut classes, a 15-year-old student at Mitchell High School in New Port Richey, Fla. was fatally struck by a car one morning last year about a mile from school grounds. “Her mother says school officials could have prevented her death — and she’s pursuing legal action with the hope of changing their supervision and tardiness policies….The notice, drafted by Mamonoff’s attorney Stacy Kemp, offered to drop the matter and settle out of court for $1 million.” [St. Petersburg Times]

Now that is a hoot! The mother could not control her own wayward child and decides to cop a cool million from her death. Neat, I should sue somebody for something. Everyone is getting in on the act.
