And What Caused The Judge's Brain Injuries...?

A young mother who sustained severe brain injuries while 'tram surfing' as a teenager has won £485,000 in compensation.
Rebecca Kelly was just 13-years-old when she held onto the outside of a Luas tram in Dublin before falling back and hitting her head on the tracks. Ms Kelly, now 20-years-old, has received a staggering payout from the High Court in Dublin despite admitting the accident was her fault.
I mean, he must have had some...?
Mr Justice Cross approved the settlement and told Ms Kelly it was unnecessary to state she had done a 'silly thing' but commended her for her honesty.

And how much will the track sue for as a result of the assault by this person (choosing my words so that I am not accused of "hate crime"!)??

I’m sure the taxpayers regret she didn’t go the full Darwin.

How severe is this brain injury? Presumably not sufficiently severe to prevent her being a mother to her child.

So the Irish legal system is as barmy as ours.

Depressing thought, eh?
