    Default N.J. Woman hit with ball sues 11 year-old

    Seriously? What is wrong with people?

    MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman who was struck in the face with a baseball at a Little League game is suing the young catcher who threw it.

    Elizabeth Lloyd is seeking more than $150,000 in damages to cover medical costs stemming from the incident at a Manchester Little League game two years ago. She's also seeking an undefined amount for pain and suffering.
    Lloyd was sitting at a picnic table near a fenced-in bullpen when she was hit with the ball.

    Catcher Matthew Migliaccio was 11 years old at the time and was warming up a pitcher.

    The lawsuit filed April 24 alleges Migliaccio's errant throw was intentional and reckless, "assaulted and battered" Lloyd and caused "severe, painful and permanent" injuries.

    A second count alleges Migliaccio's actions were negligent and careless through "engaging in inappropriate physical and/or sporting activity" near Lloyd. She continues to suffer pain and anguish, incur medical expenses and has been unable to carry out her usual duties and activities, the lawsuit says.
    And Lloyd's husband, in a third count, is suing for the loss of "services, society and consortium" of his wife. They've demanded a jury trial.

    Anthony Pagano, a lawyer for the Migliaccios, said the lawsuit is frivolous and without merit.

    "I just think that it's disgusting that you have people suing an 11-year-old kid for overthrowing his pitcher in the bullpen," Pagano said. "It's horrible this can actually happen and get this far. Ultimately, hopefully, justice will prevail."
    The count alleging negligence and carelessness is covered by homeowner's insurance, Pagano said, but the other counts are not. Little League has denied any coverage.

    Lloyd's lawyer was out of the office Friday and could not be reached for comment.

    Steve Barr, a spokesman for Little League, declined to comment on the litigation. He said each local league is required to have accident insurance, but that only covers personnel.

    "That includes coaches, players, even concession stand workers. But it does not cover spectators," Barr said.

    Matthew's father, Bob Migliaccio, said they were concerned for Lloyd when it happened. Then his son started receiving threatening and nasty letters, he said, and he started getting angry.

    "The whole thing has almost been surreal," Migliaccio said. "We keep thinking it's just going to go away, and then a week and a half ago a sheriff shows up at my door to serve my son the papers."

    I hope this woman is forced to pay all the kid's legal expenses when she loses her case and be forced to pay him for his pain and suffering through this ordeal.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Winner. Hopefully part of that compensation for pain and suffering will be a full ride to the college of his choice, baseball scholarship or not.

    People are unreal.
