    WMUR reports that Dubois' suit contends he suffered permanent brain damage "due to his heart stoppage."
    It's going to be hard to prove that it wasn't a pre-existing condition.

    Re: kid sues because he put electricity to his nipples

    I'll be the first to say the kid is at fault, but there is some merit to the suit. Obviously the soda bit is circumstantial at best, but there clearly was a risk of shock associated with that cord. The way it happened makes it hard to feel bad for the kid who is dumb enough to clamp leads to his nubs, but something similar could have happened in a much more innocent manner.

    This has Darwin Award Honorable Mention labeled all over it (honorable mention only because he survived).

    Re: kid sues because he put electricity to his nipples

    The lawsuit also states that Kelley was heard saying, "Kyle should try it with his nipples and that he, Mr. Kelley, would give him a Mountain Dew if he did so."/
    The kid is an idiot - but the teacher is screwed in court if that statement is true.

    WMUR reports that Dubois' suit contends he suffered permanent brain damage "due to his heart stoppage." The lawsuit also claims Kelley was "less than eight feet away at the time and saw and heard students engaging in this activity."
    However, Mr. Kelly could argue that the student already suffered from brain damage, as what person of normal intelligence willingly connects electrical leads to his nipples?

    Sounds like the teacher was as dumb as the student.

    Agreed. But the douchebaggery of a teacher should have no bearing on the common sense of this particular student.

    Teenagers + idiot teacher + power tools + electricity = lawsuit

    I guess in this day and age. 20 years ago it would have been filed away as a "learning experience".
