Now here is something I think we can all agree upon: the kids in this story need to be taken out and beaten with sticks.
Some children kick up a big tantrum when they’re refused toys or receive the wrong type of birthday card – but it doesn’t usually end up like this.
Kimberly Garrity, who raised Steven II, now 23, and Kathryn, now 20, in a $1.5million home in Illinois, was sued by her own children.
But the siblings, represented by three lawyers including their father, Steven A. Miner, have failed in their $50,000 lawsuit for ‘bad mothering’.
They alleged Garrity failed to take Kathryn to a car show and threatened Steven II with phoning police if he did not buckle his seatbelt.
The children claim she ‘haggled’ over dress prices and called at midnight to tell Kathryn to come home from a party, reported the Chicago Tribune.
Oh, she also sent them an inappropriate birthday card without money. If you can imagine.
This went to an appeals court, so you can imagine the legal bills. Somewhere — probably somewhere expensive, warm and covered with girls in bikinis — a bunch of lawyers are laughing their asses off.
