Not remotely crime-related: Kids' lawsuit against mother gets dismissed

I've tried to avoid posting as many stories about civil lawsuits because, well, there's usually not a crime involved. But I couldn't help passing along this one. In Chicago, two grown children tried -- and failed -- to sue their mother for faulty parenting. From the Tribune:

The alleged offenses include failing to take her daughter to a car show, telling her then 7-year-old son to buckle his seat belt or she would contact police, "haggling" over the amount to spend on party dresses and calling her daughter at midnight to ask that she return home from celebrating homecoming.
