Parents are responsible for lead paint damages

April 05, 2011

Regarding your article "City won't pay lead damages" (April 3), in my opinion judges grant large sums to plaintiffs in order to open up more lawsuits that benefit the attorneys representing clients who refuse to take responsibility for their own actions.

It is the parents who are unwilling or unfit to properly care for their fetuses and children who are responsible for birth defects and health problems.

I applaud the city for saying no. Maybe the city should sue the lawyers that represented those lead paint plaintiffs to recover the money it spent on defending itself from such claims.
