Sharpton Daughter Sues NYC For A Sprained Ankle, But Still Feels Good Enough to Hike

Sharpton Daughter Sues NYC For A Sprained Ankle, But Still Feels Good Enough to Hike

It seems that Dominique Sharpton, 29 year old daughter of the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, has learned how to make money from her father’s school of thought. She has filed a lawsuit against New York City for a sprained ankle she suffered last October, and she wants $5 million for it.

Dominique Sharpton claims she fell in a crosswalk, which would make hers a “defective roadway” claim. The city received 774 such claims in the 2014 fiscal year alone.

She was left with “internal and external injuries to the whole body, lower and upper limbs, the full extent of which are unknown, permanent pain and mental anguish,” she alleges.

The younger Sharpton is seeking the damages for “loss of quality of life, future pain and suffering, future medical bills, [and] future diminution of income,” according to court papers.

Oh my. Loss of quality of life? Future pain and suffering?

Uh, Dominique, you are vacationing and HIKING in Bali at the moment. How do we know this? She’s posting pictures on Instagram and then Tweeting them out.

Literally woke up to THIS!! #Balidays

Oops. Guess you’re not hurting THAT badly.

Pro tip: get a better pair of shoes. Your lawsuit is toast.

    Look for a big, but quiet settlement out of court that will get Ms. Sharpton a pile of money while preventing a riot amongPère Sharpton’s followers, instead of several months of unrest while the trial goes on.

    Teach your children well….

  • GWB says:

    She has evidently been seen trimming a Christmas tree on a ladder since then, as well as going about in high heels and such. Maybe she’ll get the same sort of judge the Brady Campaign got in Colorado (he pitched that one lawsuit so hard it landed on their bank account).

    What, Jeff, no link?
