The Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot File

------maxH------By The Iowa Statesman


Can someone sue themselves for damages caused by their own negligence? Apparently, in one U.S. state, you can.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the Utah Court of Appeals has given Barbara Bagley the go-ahead to proceed with a wrongful-death lawsuit against herself for alleged negligence in an accident that killed her spouse.

Bagley, as personal representative of the estate of her late husband, is suing driver Bagley, whose interests in the case are represented by her insurance carrier, according to the appeals court ruling. She seeks an unspecified amount of money for damages that include medical and funeral expenses; loss of past and future financial support; the physical pain her husband, Bradley Vom Baur, suffered before he died from his injuries; and the loss of his love and companionship.
