Citing cases dating back as far as 1928, a judge has ruled that a young girl accused of running down an elderly woman while racing a bicycle with training wheels on a Manhattan sidewalk two years ago can be sued for negligence.

I don't quite understand this. I can see how the mom could be sued but really having a hard time with a law suit against a 4 year old.

WOW this is crazy. What I don't get is how is this child responsible when she died of unrelated causes 3 months later?
