I do not live in your town, however, I did read about this on the internet in Yahoo News. I couldn't believe that this women would really think that the town was liable for her eating a piece of candy! She can't be serious! This is a perfect example of why things cost so much. Hope the town wins the suit and she gets nothing.

You're right. I can't believe the town forwarded her claim to the insurance carrier. Maybe it's just procedure to forward claims and let the carrier decide no matter how outrageous. I hope she doesn't get one red cent.

Some people just want to take advantage if they can. I think she shouldn't get anything for her tooth.

Now it would be a good idea to pick this up and start putting a lid on frivolous lawsuits.

She could put her tooth under her pillow for the tooth fairy.

That's a good idea. What's the going rate for an adult tooth?
