"No Boys to Drive" Lawsuit to Proceed

The Supreme Court of Virginia has ruled that a mother who hosted a teen age girl for a sleepover, and who made a promise to the parents that "I won't let you daughter be driven by a boy" may be sued when the young girl died in an accident later that night when being driven by a teen age male driver.

This case should send a strong warning to parents that they have an obligation to keep their promises.

UPDATE: The case settled for $1.75 million in April, 2010. Check out my blog on the settlement for this wrongful death case.
