Almost every civil suit ends in summary dismissal or settlement.
Considering there's a conviction, ain't no way a judge is going to dismiss this civil suit out of hand.
Sure, the amount of damages currently alleged are preposterous, and everyone knows that, but there's no question that these kids hurt the woman at least a little.
So, since it's unlikely anyone is going to dismiss the suit, this one will settle too, at a fraction of what the plaintiff's attorney is going for.
It's all going to be a question of what the kid's parents are going to be able to shell out.
Serves 'em right, too.
Kids were being turds, hurting innocent people, and making life harder for the rest of us honest paintballers.
Hope their parents buy this lady and her lawyer new Lexuses.
