Update on lawsuit vs Roberto Alomar

Yesterday I commented that I was not sure I understood what the plaintiff's claim was for. Today, CNN reports that she "claims in the lawsuit that Alomar's negligence caused her severe "emotional distress" over the health of her children. Court papers say that because the couple lived with the children, they may have been exposed to Alomar's saliva or blood in the bathroom, through things like toothbrushes and other items. [She] claims to suffer from "permanent emotional distress" even after repeatedly testing negative for HIV. The lawsuit claims her fear of contracting the disease is known as "AIDS phobia" and that she suffers from permanent post-traumatic stress disorder." The new CNN story is available here.
