One would imagine that a $127,000 can buy an awful lot hors d’oeuvres and perhaps even someone to hold on to that plate of goodies for Jennifer Connell, as she attends those fashionable Manhattan parties, so she wouldn’t strain her injured wrist holding on to that plate, or perhaps having someone pop an hors d’oeuvre into her mouth every few minutes may also be another option…sounds absurd!

Not if you’re this 54-year-old human resources manager from Manhattan, seeking damages from her young 12-year old nephew, for allegedly breaking her wrist in 2011.

Connell claims her injury occurred when she visited the youngster's Westport, Connecticut, home for his eighth birthday party, and shouted, "Auntie Jen, Auntie Jen!" He then leaped into her arms, causing her to fall and break her wrist.

However nothing was said by Connell at the time, and apparently no one knew she had been injured. Connell claimed that she knew she was injured, but didn't say anything right away. "It was his birthday party, and I didn't want to upset him," she reportedly told the jury.

However, Connell later decided to sue her nephew for damages stating; "I live in Manhattan in a third-floor walk-up, so it has been very difficult," and we all know how crowded it is in Manhattan."

She added; "I was at a party recently, and it was difficult to hold my hors d’oeuvre plate."

And “no” you can’t make this stuff up!!!
