BOUND BROOK —We all love our lawyers. Heck, no one wants to tick them off. But, as NJ.com reports, our litigious world has gone way beyond absurd proportions to chase a payday. No, we aren’t talking about that rich lady suing the Alpine Country Club over her wine-stained $30,000 bag. We’re talking about the court case against a Bound Brook High School JV baseball coach, in court because he instructed a player to slide into third base. The kid got injured; his nascent baseball career done. Steve Politi of NJ.com is brilliant yet again, asking how coaches are expected to coach under a shroud of potential litigation if and when the kids get injured. This court case — which no one paid any attention — set a dangerous precedent and could have ended youth sports as we know it. Luckily, the jury sided with the coach, while an insurance company spent $75,000 to defend him over a seven-year legal odyssey. Politi was there in the empty courtroom to tell the story. Check it out on NJ.com, but also make sure to read today’s Jaffe Briefing.
