To even have had the nerve to blame those innocent children for this tragedy, merely walking on a pedestrian sidewalk at the time, was simply ludicrous--actually outrageous! I am happy the attorneys have seen fit to acknowledge the absurdity of that claim and compensate this family for the very serious injuries that will no doubt have lifetime consequences.

I second reader Elsie Floriani's comments. Well said.
I'm wondering if perhaps after reading the dozens of reader comments left with each publication of well-to-do Woodside attorney Ed Nelson's heinous act, that well-to-do Woodside attorney Ed Nelson and his team of shysters sensed the outrage and disbelief of the community, and decided it would be better to step up to the plate and fess up to this matter, as well-to-do Woodside attorney Ed Nelson should have done in the first place.
Kudos to the Cadigan family for their persistence in this matter. My heart goes out to them for all they have suffered since well-to-do Woodside attorney Ed Nelson ran over their children, causing very serious injuries "...that will no doubt have lifetime consequences", as reader Floriani observes, and with which I agree.
Does anyone happen to know the name of the San Mateo County Superior Court Judge who initially denied the Cadigan's first request? I would love to write him/her a letter, asking just how much behind-the-scenes, good-old-boy politics played a part in denying the Cadigan's first request. Just askin'... : )

When the door is "slammed in your face" keep pushing. Kudos to the family to keep pursuing.
Hope all turns out well for the family years from now.
