Stupid lawsuit dismissed
Some lawyer actually recommended that Katrina Carter sue the court bailiff who tried to rescue her and injured her leg. She was involved in a custody dispute, in the courthouse, when one Robert Tippins attacked her and began "punching her in the face." The Deputy injured her ankle in the process of subduing the attacker. She sued alleging an intentional injury or gross negligence. The Court of Appeals agreed with the trial judge that no reasonable juror could reach the conclusion that the defendant was guilty of "gross negligence" under the circumstances.
