Can't say I ever tripped a kid.  I've farted in their face though.

I am reminded of the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail where you have the long scene of Lancelot running up to attack the tower while two guards just stare at him and wonder what he's doing.

I love it when scammers build a pit lies and then fall into it. But wouldn't this sort of thing normally come out in discovery? Or is this too small a case for discovery?
 
2022-07-05 10:14:56 AM  
People like to pretend something awful happened to them in our store. And, you know, video nearly always suggests otherwise...

On the one had this woman seems like an awful scammer but on the other - kids in supermarkets.

Walking through a museum with a mom and kid in front me.  Kid, about seven, decides to go into a super arm swinging power walk and his backswing got me right in the big hairy guys.  Total accident, mom was super apologetic, kid was very sorry and started to cry.  I went into dad mode to calm him down.  Politely asked him to be more careful next time.  He agreed and we shook hands on it.  About ten minutes later, I was fine.  Not everything needs a lawsuit.

I remember a case some years ago.  Lady trips over a kid who running around crazy and she broke her ankle. Sued Target for allowing kid to run amok. It was her kid.

Now, where's the assault charge against the kid she deliberately tripped?

Muta: Can't say I ever tripped a kid.  I've farted in their face though.


I didn't quite trip a kid, but I did allow one to bash his head into my shopping cart.

Was in Sam's Club in the early 90s with my now ex-wife, patiently waiting in line.  Kid was with his mom in the line next to ours, and he was being a typical kid -- jumping up and down, spinning around, just being a general dork.  He kept getting closer and closer to us while his mom was staring off vacantly.  Kid eventually spun himself into my cart, whacked his head, and started crying.

His mom wasn't quite happy when I laughed out loud.  Neither was my wife.

Knowing what I know about security cameras, it's pretty lucky they could actually retrieve the footage they needed, and it was of good enough quality to actually be useful in court.

Russ1642: She must have been thinking that if Rudy can get away with it then so can she.


It would have been the other way around since this happened in 2017, long before Rudy was viciously assaulted lightly tapped on the back. It has been making its way through the Irish justice system since then.

And that is exactly why I installed a video camera in my car.   Only in my case, it was a woman who deliberately drove her car right into my car head-on, at under 20 mph thankfully.

She threw a giant fit at the scene about how I needed to buy her a new car and kept trying to weasel a new car and damages out of me and the insurance company.

Unfortunately for her, my 20-year-old Subaru had only scratches, while her Chevy was ruined.

2) Make sure said link does not include video.

You clearly didn't see Rudy's body sway forward at least half an inch from the impact.  He's lucky to be alive and able to walk.

There is absolutely discovery. I have a case that's very similar to this. A lady claimed to have slipped on a piece of merchandise that was left out on the sales floor, which caused her to fall. We showed her the video of her walking right into an employee and throwing herself onto the floor, but she still claims that it's possible that there was also something on the floor despite there being literally 7 witnesses (including the plaintiff's own husband and daughter) that all testified that there wasn't anything there. I'm still waiting for the judge to rule on whether the case will be thrown out.

I worked as a Target cashier one summer and one Christmas break in college. Two women's genius plan to con us out of a lot of money was:

1. Have one of them buy a candy bar at every checkout.
2. Have that purchaser say in a very flat voice. "My sister just fell. She was pregnant just two weeks ago" at every checkout. Decline first aid when asked for it.
3. ????
4. PROFIT!

/Target wasn't just prepared for bullshiat like that, they had a camera on every lane and a special form for me to fill out asking if I had seen anything remotely suggesting she had actually fallen, like water on the floor.
//I still wonder what the fark those women were thinking telling us all she had fallen would accomplish.
 
2022-07-05 11:57:26 AM  
She sued the store because the kid was running amok?
What were the employees supposed to do? Lasso the kid? Tase it? Han Solo it in a freezer? Throw it in a cart and push it into traffic?

My dashcam has saved me 3 times in about 10 years.  Allowed two accidents where you would typically be declared 50% at fault to 0% at fault which prevented my car insurance going up.

Another time a cop wanted to give me a ticket for running a red light.  The camera clearly showed the light was yellow when I entered the intersection.
