    Jennifer Connell is suing her nephew for tackling her in a hug and breaking her wrist. She is seeking $127,000 in damages from the now-12-year-old.
    If only they could just hug it out.

    A human resources manager from Manhattan is suing her nephew over a leaping greeting from the then-8-year-old that left her with a broken wrist, according to reports.

    Jennifer Connell, 54, believes little Sean Tarala, now 12, should have known better than to jump into her arms as a means of welcoming her to his birthday party in 2011, ctpost.com reported Monday.

    Connell, of E. 73rd St. on the Upper East Side, is seeking $127,000 in damages for suffering a broken wrist when the two fell to the ground in the rough reception, according to the site.

    The aunt, who has no children of her own, said her life has not been the same since the 50-pound bundle of boyish energy bounded into her open arms.

    “I live in Manhattan in a third-floor walkup so it has been very difficult,” Connell testified Friday at Connecticut Superior Court in Bridgeport. “And we all know how crowded it is in Manhattan.”

    And if walking up stairs with an injured wrist wasn’t difficult enough, the after-effects on Connell’s social life have been disastrous.

    “I was at a party recently and it was difficult to hold my hors d’oeuvres plate,” she added.

    The minor child is the only defendant in the case.

    Connell’s troubles on started Mar. 18, 2011, when she arrived at her nephew’s Westport, Conn., home.

    Sean was outside playing with a brand new bike he had received for his birthday. The excited boy dropped his new set of wheels and ran toward his aunt to greet her, shouting, “Auntie Jen, Auntie Jen.”

    “All of a sudden he was there in the air, I had to catch him and we tumbled onto the ground,” Connell testified, according to ctpost.com. “I remember him shouting, ‘Auntie Jen I love you,’ and there he was flying at me.”

    Although hurt, Connell said, she didn’t tell her nephew the extent of her injuries.

    “It was his birthday party and I didn’t want to upset him,” she told the jury.

    Sean, whose mother died last year, appeared confused as he sat with his father, Michael Tarala, in court Friday, according to ctpost.

    A family member at the boy’s home declined to comment on the lawsuit.

    Connell, during her testimony, said Sean had always been “very loving, sensitive,” toward her, but she still feels the pre-teen is responsible for her injury.

    “The injuries, losses and harms to the plaintiff were caused by the negligence and carelessness of the minor defendant in that a reasonable eight year old under those circumstances would know or should have known that a forceful greeting such as the one delivered by the defendant to the plaintiff could cause the harms and losses suffered by the plaintiff,” the lawsuit claims.

    But it wasn't a preteen who did this but a small boy of eight who probably doesn't have 127 thousand. Some aunt.

    It's all an insurance thing. The whole family is probably in on it.

    Maybe the mother left the kid a lot of money and now the aunt wants a cut?
    Living in Manhattan with a healed 4 year old wrist injury is no laughing matter. :nocheer:

    Off the charts. I agree that it"s an insurance grab & the whole family is in on it - but fuck her - that's stealing.
    In life shit happens - deal with it.

    Smacks of an Onion article.

    Items of note.

    1. She's a human Resources manager ... so again its important to point out to people, "Human Resources" are conniving assholes there to keep a company from being sued, not to help you.

    2. 8 years old and 50 pounds ... what? Was he a Chinese orphan or something?

    It will be summarily tossed.

    You can't get a civil judgement against someone who hasn't reached the age of majority.

    Actually, I HOPE that's what this is, because I can't wrap my head around someone who could be that big of a cunt.

    Well...other than Beefus, of course. :rolleyes:
