A four-year old child can be sued in Manhattan

Just came across a truly bizarre case. Judge Paul Wooten of State Supreme Court of Manhattan recently ruled that a young girl who was accused of running down an 87 year old woman while racing a bicycle with training wheels on a side walk in Midtown can be sued for negligence. It so happened that the old lady fell and broke her hip and subsequently passed away after which her estate sued the young girl and another young boy and their mothers who had been supervising the toddlers.
Here are the details
I am truly shocked by the judge. Yes its unfortunate that the lady in question,Claire Menagh was hurt and died but accidents do happen and that is exactly what this an unfortunate accident. To drag the families and the young children through court is an unbelievable waste of time, money and effort. What do you think?
