    So the minor girl’s parents are so desperate for money that they would ruin their daughter’s life by forcing her to lie about her consent, yet the adult boy’s parents think it a good idea to sue those same girl’s parents for the money they don’t have.

    And it was poor parenting for the girl to drink and go to Ghostland and pick up the acquaintance boy, but not poor parenting for the boy to drink and go to Ghostland (an offense that could shorten the baseball season that he claims would get him into MLB)and pick up the acquaintance girl. And poor parenting for her, he alleges, but not for him to be sexually experienced in high school.

    The Romos may intend this action to clear their son’s name, but I think it risks doing just the opposite. At best he comes off as having sex with a drunk minor. He should be focused on finding a college where he can play baseball and work toward being a pro. No more Eatzi’s for me; I’m not interested in funding this revenge suit any more than I have to through my taxes for civil courts.

    I think glorify is probably not the right word. It is a warning to all young men and women who think this can’t happen to them. I am not sure I believe 100% of anything I have heard about this situation, but I sent my kid the stories linked above as a warning of what could happen. You’re right about this being sad. Everybody involved lost. I hope we all can do better–including the parents.

    Lawyers are awesome and they seem to be the only ones winning in this case. By the way wasn’t this kid already 19 in November? What was he doing still in high school preying on 16 year olds in the first place. Sue that
