Sanity Prevails 

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

The world got just a little bit less ridiculous recently, as a lawsuit brought by two children against their mother has been dismissed by an Illinois appeals court. Steven and Kathryn Miner attempted to sue their mother, Kimberly Garrity, for emotional distress related to her parenting. What exactly did Garrity do?

[S]he failed to buy toys for one and sent another a birthday card he didn’t like.

The alleged offenses [also] include failing to take her daughter to a car show, telling her then-7-year-old son to buckle his seat belt or she would contact police, “haggling” over the amount to spend on party dresses and calling her daughter at midnight to ask that she return home from celebrating homecoming.

Nice as it is to see such a frivolous lawsuit dismissed, perhaps Garrity should take a page from their book, and sue her ungrateful offspring for bad…childing. She’d have a better case than they did, just by pointing out how they tried to sue her first.
