Girls sued for delivering cookies

Girls sued for delivering cookies

http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/02/04/costly.cookies.ap/index.html

DURANGO, Colorado (AP) -- Two teenage girls who surprised their neighbors with homemade cookies late one night were ordered to pay nearly $900 in medical bills for a woman who says she was so startled that she had to go to the hospital.

Judge Doug Walker declined Thursday to award punitive damages, saying he did not believe the girls acted maliciously.

Taylor Ostergaard, 17, and Lindsey Jo Zellitti, 18, baked the chocolate chip and sugar cookies one night last July.

They made packages with a half-dozen cookies each and added large red or pink construction-paper hearts that carried the message, "Have a great night."

The notes were signed with their first initials: "Love, The T and L Club."

Then they set off to make their deliveries.

Wanita Renea Young, 49, said she was at her rural home south of Durango around 10:30 p.m. when she said saw "shadowy figures" outside the house banging repeatedly on her door.

She yelled, "Who's there?" but no one answered, and the figures ran away.

Frightened, she spent the night at her sister's home, then went to the hospital the next morning because she was still shaking and had an upset stomach.

The teenagers' families offered to pay Young's medical bills, but she declined and sued, saying their apologies were not sincere and were not offered in person.

The girls declined comment after the ruling. Taylor's mother said the girl "cried and cried."

"She felt she was being punished for doing something nice," Jill Ostergaard said.

Young said the teenagers showed "very poor judgment"

"The victory wasn't sweet," Young said. "I'm not gloating about it. I just hope the girls learned a lesson."

The teens said they did not answer when the woman called out because they wanted the treats to be a surprise

yeah what the fuck, that's fucking rediculous!

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Taylor Ostergaard, 17, left,
and Lindsey Jo Zellitti, 18


Taylor and Lindsey appeared on ABC's "Good Morning, America" at 5 a.m. Saturday. They have received requests for interviews from "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", Canadian public radio as well as "Inside Edition", the "Today Show", and the Larry Elder show in Los Angeles.

Radio station KOA-AM of Denver raised more than $1,900 from listeners Friday to pay the girls' $930.78 fine. The rest of the money will go to a charity dedicated to victims of the Columbine High School massacre.

The Otis Spunkmeyer cookie-making company is offering to hold an event in Durango to set things right.

Meanwhile, Richard Ostergaard, father of Taylor, got a restraining order against Young's husband, Herb, in county court, claiming he continues to make harassing telephone calls to the Ostergaard residence.

Wanita Young said, "This has turned into quite a fiasco. It's something that never should have happened and it's just devastating. My phone hasn't stopped ringing. My life has been threatened and I'll probably have to move out of town."

This is a totally outrageous case and should never have even come to court, in my opinion. The judge should have dismissed this as a "frivolous" lawsuit and instead praised the girls for their kind and selfless act.

Yep... too stupid to play the lawsuit lottery... you have to sue a large company, not the young girls next door, if you plan to get rich at somebody elses expense.

Serves her right, suing girls for giving her cookies, doing a nice friendly thing. It's like we're in the twilight zone or something.
