Is the Aunt Who Sued Her Nephew as Awful As Her Actions Seem?

Did you hear about this? A week or so ago Jennifer Connell made headlines when she sued her 12 year old nephew for $127,000.00. For what? For hugging her too aggressively and breaking her arm that happened 4 years ago. The media blasted her, calling her The Aunti Christ. Soon the #Auntfromhell was trending.

When I first heard this story I was completely appalled. How could an aunt sue her own nephew for hugging her too hard. I have a nephew and I have to practically pay him to hug me.

She took to the news media to attempt to explain herself...

She claims that she had to sue her nephew in order for the home owners insurance to pay her medical bills. She says she was never comfortable with it. But here is the thing. If a lawyer came to me and said in order to get your medical bills (I mean how much could a broken arm cost?)  she would need to name her nephew in the case. Now if this was me as soon as the lawyer said that it would be over. I would never put my 12 year old nephew through that. I would never do anything that might lead him to believe that I did not love him, or like him. This women instead went ahead and dragged her nephew through court and a media storm. I think all the nicknames she has earned fit. 

Oh and she lost her case.
