A couple of things:
1) I wonder what the judge's reasoning was for awarding the plaintiff even her medical expenses.
2) CNN's site said, "the teenagers' families offered to pay Young's medical bills, but she declined and sued, saying their apologies were not sincere and were not offered in person." The site cited did not mention that. (BTW, I understand why the girls did not offer and do not blame the girls for not offering the apology in person once it became a legal matter.)
3) This person is now going to be the neighborhood pariah. We all had one, usually some old widow who looked like a witch and had a thousand cats, growing up. Her ostricism was probably undeserved; this woman's is very deserving.
