To borrow a term from Sarah Palin, David Weaving has "cojones." Or something.
Weaving, a 48-year-old Connecticut man with a history of drunk driving offenses, is serving time on manslaughter charges. And he has filed suit against the parents of the 14-year-old bicyclist whom he killed when Weaving lost control of his vehicle while going 83 mph in a 45-mph zone in Prospect, Conn., on April 27, 2007. Weaving is accusing the Matthew Kenney's parents, Stephen and Joanne Kenney, of "contributory negligence" because they didn't force their son to wear a helmet while riding his bike. Weaving is seeking more than $15,000 in damages for the "great mental and emotional pain" he's suffered from the incident.
