Imagine the surprise of a man who opened the mail to find a subpoena for his 1-year-old son. That’s right, a Harrisonburg chiropractor sued a baby.
The Daily News Record explains that the judge dismissed the ill-advised collections action; apparently, the address in the baby’s file never got updated after the family moved, so his parents didn’t know about the debt.
But what if the suit went forward? The baby couldn’t testify, says his dad. The boy barely can say “dog” at this point. And what if the chiropractor got a judgment? What would he levy on – the baby’s teething biscuits?
