Those sort of back in session on -- -- -- -- -- 32 year old man accusing his parents of not loving him enough as a child.
So he's suing them for a -- allowance.
Bernard day is homeless.
And yet an aspiring record mogul.
He blames his parents for his situation saying they were loving or nurturing and all when he was a child.
And now he's asking a judge to force them to pay up claiming 200000 dollars should set things right.
His mother says Bernard get a job.
Adding that she has had a lifetime -- -- Bernard and she's done.
Can you really -- this.
John a spell -- a former prosecutor now defense attorney Julia morrow is -- overpriced if it.
-- -- it has come -- with an interesting theory.
About why he is homeless and why he claims all of the siblings are struggling to and it is all the parents' fault.
Juliette can you make for -- case.
I you know -- -- and I think I can I mean luck in New York.
Parents are obligated to support -- minor children.
And treat them well and if they don't do -- and while the child -- minor that they can actually step -- and take action on behalf about child.
And protect that child's right.
But what happens when you have a case like this where -- an adult.
-- abused and that lawsuit also alleges abuse Mike and I mean he he verbally abused and -- -- and the dad -- in front of him it wasn't just you know the lack of love.
But you know now all of a sudden you've got a good functional damaged adults whose life is doomed I mean what if his -- course.
And I'm going to say under these circumstances.
It's a lawsuit.
Such as this symington structurally there's not much of a difference.
Between the law protecting a child he's being abused.
And then the law providing a vehicle for an adult to vindicate abuse which is -- basically led to -- a bad light on the part about it don't.
So I think it's a legitimate -- -- -- hard to do no better than Julia had representation.
He could do -- yeah I've and I couldn't.
-- lawyer who can make your exit strategy just nobody nobody that was a great argument.
But you know and I'm not one to judge 'cause look at that work for unemployed losers my dating people would get a whole lot off and has sent a tape you up -- back to call you but yeah.
Outside but at the Internet and not give you the right to -- -- -- up your mommy.
This is not a child in -- you made a billion aren't -- but -- thirteenth two years old.
Get a -- stop selling T shirt and start flipping burgers and do something to be productive in -- society.
Because what he's doing right now is really waste the time now expected at that and good -- this very interesting -- fit my FaceBook page went -- over but he did not have a the.
Like the mother came out and said she's scared of him she said go get a job he's never had a job to date is life she -- everyone in America has the same opportunity Bernard.
Don't blame your parents at this point the choice is yours you're an adult.
You can't have the -- clogged up with actions -- by children living their parents weren't loving enough -- Or you don't mind and that's a great point and I had a feeling you were going to raise that.
Did not want argument to make however look -- that the lawsuit people bring firm for car accidents and slip and falls.
A lot of them are frivolous and and then -- their -- injuries are soft tissue injuries they feel better and a couple of days but yet they wanna get paid.
So they bring all these lawsuits and the courts.
Are responsible to -- through this type of lawsuits so why not you know how lawsuits such as these and you know they had been intra family immunity has been abolished in New York.
And you know that's.
A lot of it -- -- shortest attention but it -- what about the alleged abuse he claims and by the width one of the sibling says he's a pathological liar but he does now claimed his father was abusive toward him.
Is that part actionable Canada -- an -- -- that.
-- I want -- think not anymore maybe when he was a child in the abuse was allegedly.
Actually going on than the department of social services would step in and we had agencies that handle that to come out however many years later -- that you were abused and now that's causing -- not to be able to be employed.
Is so far that's unlike an accident case where you could physically have an injury and you have to decide who's libel distanced -- totally different and not for nothing -- but I threatened to move out of my parents' -- when I was eighteen you know they told me it's a great an early Christmas that lets you -- you.
And to let -- study she said the financial umbilical cord is getting cut this is nicely by graduate of ecology -- players and I got to run they think you can and we'll be right back again.
