A lady who was caught on video falling into a fountain at a mall as a result of her distracted text messaging has hired a lawyer and plans to sue the mall.
She claims she could have been seriously hurt and that the security guards should have helped her instead of laughing at her.
Here is video of the lady falling:
Now if you're like me, you're probably saying to yourself: "Is she REALLY suing the mall because SHE FELL in a fountain as a result of her own CARELESSNESS?!?!??" She DIDN'T get hurt and it was ALL HER FAULT. How is she SUING ANYBODY?!?!?!
She's probably hoping to settle out of court for a few $10k so that she can profit from this whole situation. Yes, the mall shouldn't have released the video, but:
1. The security guard who released it was fired
2. Her lawsuit doesn't make mention of the fact that the video was released AND
3. NO ONE WOULD'VE KNOWN THAT SHE FELL IN THE FOUNTAIN HAD SHE NOT COME FORWARD WITH THIS STUPID LAWSUIT!!
Here's the twist - this lady is facing 5 felony charges for fraud and identity theft. Apparently she stole a coworker's credit card and ran up all kinds of charges.
Personally, I don't think that such a frivolous lawsuit is any different from stealing. Why?
The owners of the mall will not want to waste time in court, so they're inclined to settle for 1/4 to 1/2 of their legal defense fees.
Here's another twist - the lady is a professed christian. She said that she was texting her "church friends" when she fell into the fountain.
i'm done. so done.
