News|Woman sues her 8 year old nephew due to a broken wrist

In addition to Sean Tarala having to deal with the death of his mother last year, he also had the battle of being sued by his aunt Jennifer Connell.

Jennifer Connell, 54, filed a $127,000 lawsuit against her nephew who accidentally broke her wrist when he jumped into her arms for a birthday hug in 2011. Her nephew, who was eight at the time, was “not careful” and “unsafe”. Connell’s lawyer said during closing arguments. Connell alleges that her broken wrist has impacted her social life and made it difficult to climb the stairs to her third-floor walkup. Jennifer Connell shouldn’t receive a penny from her nephew. The Connecticut Post reports that Connell showed no emotion when the verdict was announced. She then asked for judicial marshals to escort her to her car through the sea of reporters waiting outside.
