Juliet Breitman V Menagh: Four Year Old Cyclist Sued Over Woman’s Death

by | 30th, October 2010

JULIET Breitman is being sued as a child of four years and nine months of age who drove her bicycle into one Claire Menagh, 87, in New York, causing the women to fall, damage her hip and then die three months later.

Juliet is deemed to have been able to be responsible for her own actions. That was April 2009. Now she’s older, we think Juliet should defend herself in court. Dougie Howser proved that a youngster could hack it as a doctor. Time is ripe for a TV series about young lawyer. Juliet Brietman is for hire. Did you pet die in mysterious circumstances? Is being told to eat our greens a breach of your human rights? Juilet Brietman will fight for you.

Back to the prelude. It’s April 2009 in New York City. Juliet Breitman and Jacob Kohn are with their mothers Dana Breitman and Rachel Kohn. The hotshot young lawyers are cycling – nay, racing – along the pavement near the East River in Manhattan.

Ms Menagh is on foot. She is hit. The hip is fractured. Survey beckons. Three months later she dies.

Menagh and her son argue that the kids were “negligent in their operation and control of their bicycles“. They also sue Dana Breitman and Rachel Kohn.

New York Supreme Court Judge Paul Wooten says Juliet can be sued.

Juliette is bright enough to be sued. She should, therefore, be deemed bright enough to defend herself.

On with the show…
