Bicycle Assassin: You’re Never Too Young To Get Sued

December 14, 2010

Inside Counsel Magazine has a humor feature about Strange Lawsuits. Every month they send me short descriptions of four cases. I rough out ideas, they pick a winner. This one involved a 4-year-old girl who was sued after running into an 87-year-old woman with her bicycle. The woman sustained a severe hip injury.
