Walter’s Perspective: Silly Lawsuit By Spoiled Brats

CHICAGO (CBS) — I came across a story today I never imagined I would – about two young adults, a brother and sister from an elite Chicago suburb, filing a lawsuit against their mother, accusing her of mistreating them.

The children are in their 20s. Kathryn and Steven Miner – raised in a million-dollar home in hotsy-totsy Barrington Hills – alleged in their lawsuit that their mom did not do right by them.

They claimed that she did not buy enough toys for Kathryn, or buy her a new dress for a homecoming party, or send care packages to Steven while he was in college, or put money in his birthday cards. All of which, they say, have caused them emotional-distress – which is why, they say, they were in court, tying up the court for two years, demanding their mother give them $50,000.

For the sake of her children, and to be a good parent, what mom ought to give them is a good quick kick in the you know what.

    I wonder if the mother was a drunk?????

  • The Ghost of Bob McBride

    Isn’t there some sort of legal filter for time-wasters like this? How do you say “That’s show biz!” in Latin?

  • a good mommy

    The rest of the story is: their lawyer is/was their father, the EX-husband of the wife. And when I looked him up on a ratings web-site , it showed that he has been disiplined in the past. What a shock. He should be disiplined for this case.
