Overlawyered links to an interesting article about a woman who sued a 7 year old. The woman was injured while rollerblading when her rollerblade caught on the wheel of the boy's bicycle. The article notes that the trial court and appellate court have dismissed the case. And the article suggests this is because she was suing a 7 year old, but in fact the description of the facts - or what little there is - suggests that in reality the case was thrown out probably because she failed to state a claim.

It would be interesting to read a full factual summary of the circumstances surrounding the accident itself. It seems unlikely to me the case was simply dismissed because the defendant was a 7 year old - but what do I know.....
