The Case of Duckett v. Rabid Harpy

    Probably no chance it'll ever get to verdict, but I'm going to be loving the discovery process on this one. And I will buy a ticket for the plaintiff's cross.

    Picture 2 of 5 with that story is priceless.

    Mother killed the kid.

    Grace did nothing wrong.

    It's not a matter of whether she did something wrong. It's a matter of whether she committed a tort against the dead woman.

    This thread should really be retitled. It's terribly offensive to rabid harpys everywhere.

    Well, you show me video of Grace with the gun to Duckett's head, forcing her to be interviewed, and you may sway me.

    False dichotomy. She doesn't have to do that to commit a tort.

    Show me Grace saying Duckett killed the boy.

    BTW, that is not an example of a false dichotomy.

    All I'm saying is that if Grace's actions caused emotional distress to the woman, however culpable she might have been in a murder, and that distress led to her suicide, then there is a case. Intent is not necessarily needed when a legally defined "reasonable person" could have foreseen the outcome.

    Well, one cannot foresee suicide by a mother when her young child is out there needing to be saved.
  12. I thought Nancy Grace had no fans.
    I was wrong.
