This Year’s Most Frivolous Lawsuit

Posted by Bobby on May 21, 2007


Jean Gonzalez is suing Little League coach Leigh Bernstein, the New Springville Little League and Little League Baseball and Softball Inc. over an incident in which her son was seriously hurt sliding into second base.

The lawsuit alleges that the boy wasn’t taught how to slide properly and that as a result he suffered “serious bodily injury” leaving “permanent scarring and disability.” The league and parents have expressed shock and dismay at the litigation.

“I’ve been coaching for over 20 years, and have instructed players in the various skills required to play baseball, including sliding. Unfortunately, injuries happen. That’s part of the game,” said Bernstein.

Maybe DHS or Childcare services should step in and take the child away from the parent for allow him to play such a “dangerous” sport.
