They Grow Up Fast No Matter What

DURANGO, Colo. (Reuters) - A Colorado judge ordered two teen-age girls to pay about $900 for the distress a neighbor said they caused by giving her home-made cookies adorned with paper hearts.

The pair were ordered to pay $871.70 plus $39 in court costs after neighbor Wanita Renea Young, 49, filed a lawsuit complaining that the unsolicited cookies, left at her house after the girls knocked on her door, had triggered an anxiety attack that sent her to the hospital the next day.

Taylor Ostergaard, then 17, and Lindsey Jo Zellitte, 18, paid the judgment on Thursday after a small claims court ruling by La Plata County Court Judge Doug Walker, a court clerk said on Friday.

The girls baked cookies as a surprise for several of their rural Colorado neighbors on July 31 and dropped off small batches on their porches, accompanied by red or pink paper hearts and the message: "Have a great night."

The Denver Post newspaper reported on Friday that the girls had decided to stay home and bake the cookies rather than go to a dance where there might be cursing and drinking.

It reported that six neighbors wrote letters entered as evidence in the case thanking the girls for the cookies.

But Young said she was frightened because the two had knocked on her door at about 10:30 p.m. and run off after leaving the cookies.

She went to a hospital emergency room the next day, fearing that she had suffered a heart attack, court records said.

The judge awarded Young her medical costs, but did not award punitive damages. He said he did not think the girls had acted maliciously but that 10:30 was fairly late at night for them to be out


This isn't usually my cup of tea. I was going to post it on my blog, but it just doesn't fit into my political agenda. So I though, I know some people who would be interested in this.

My take: As soon as I locate the plans, I'm going to build me a rocket ship and blast myself out of here and find another planet to live on, anyone want to join me?

A comment from a friend at work - she was probably hoping to get a big settlement.

The Courts should have thrown out the case. How frivolous can one get? Too many people just look for a way to win the 'Legal Lottery'. If she had a problem, she should have taken it up with the girl's mother. Their parents may have agreed to pay the medical costs without going to court.

A person who bring such a frivolous case to court, and looses, should have to pay for court costs, including the judge's salary, and face time for contempt of court. I bet you will see a drastic reduction in such nonsense. A person was suing a good friend of mine for bodily harm incurred while on his property. The guy was trespassing in the first place, had a burglary record, and it was ultimately proven he was not injured at all. He got up and walked out of the courtroom, carrying his crutches in his hand. Because it was an insurance case, guess who got the bill for the courts.
