I thought California had some crazy laws but this one wins the Darwin Award.
I can see it now:if little Billy falls down playing tag then the "taggers" parents will have to pay his medical bills and take parenting classes....while the "tagger" has to take anger management classes and will be prescribed Ridilyn.
No, the "taggee's" family sues the school (in the hypothetical situation), and in this lawsuit-happy age, the school got scared and overreacted. WAY overreacted. This one truly is idiotic. I can see what drove it though.
Probably 10% of students have an overprotective parent (of those, a small percentage is rich and arrogant enough to file a lawsuit). Another third want everyone to take responsibility for their child but themselves. Another small percentage could care less what happened to their child at all (sad but true). And then there is everyone else, who would just like their kid to be happy, have opportunities to succeed, and lead a pretty normal life. It's the first couple types that make it a real pain for the rest.
