DURANGO, Colorado (Reuters) - A Colorado judge ordered two teen-age girls to pay about $900 (480 pounds) for the distress a neighbour said they caused by giving her home-made cookies adorned with paper hearts.
The pair were ordered to pay $871.70 plus $39 in court costs after neighbour Wanita Renea Young, 49, filed a lawsuit complaining that the unsolicited cookies, left at her house after the girls knocked on her door, had triggered an anxiety attack that sent her to the hospital the next day.
Taylor Ostergaard, then 17, and Lindsey Jo Zellitte, 18, paid the judgment on Thursday after a small claims court ruling by La Plata County Court Judge Doug Walker, a court clerk said on Friday.
The girls baked cookies as a surprise for several of their rural Colorado neighbours on July 31 and dropped off small batches on their porches, accompanied by red or pink paper hearts and the message: "Have a great night".
The Denver Post newspaper reported on Friday that the girls had decided to stay home and bake the cookies rather than go to a dance where there might be cursing and drinking.
It reported that six neighbours wrote letters entered as evidence in the case thanking the girls for the cookies.
But Young said she was frightened because the two had knocked on her door at about 10:30 p.m. and run off after leaving the cookies.
She went to a hospital emergency room the next day, fearing that she had suffered a heart attack, court records said.
The judge awarded Young her medical costs, but did not award punitive damages. He said he did not think the girls had acted maliciously but that 10:30 was fairly late at night for them to be out.
I said to him, Teddy did you know that today is yesterday's tomorrow?
He got confused and so did half the class, and he was the only one stoned that day.
I love my Social Studies Class, I have the same teacher that I did last year he's the best teacher ever, he's so god damn funny. We don't get anything done in that class.

I also heard about that cookie story. I think it's rather sad that two young girls were sued for doing what they thought was a nice deed. I mean, they baked cookies for their neighbor rather than go to a party with drugs and alcohol! That woman who sued them is a bitch.

Gee that was nice!
And toxicsideeffects, I have never heard of that. But that's a reather nasty thought, don't you think?
Nasty, yeah, but helpful. Now when my poop starts floating, I'll know to watch what I'm eating. *ha ha ha*
There are doctors that study this stuff, they're called "scatologists."
....No, it's probably the titties!
