    No fault sculpture insurance? How about a subrogation action against the parents HO policy or did they not have any insurance for the boys actions?

    Ya’ll should probably learn a little about parental liability laws. Kansas specifically has a statute that states parents are liable for willful and malicious acts of a child under 18 but there is no such standard for careless or accidental acts. Also, in most states a child under the age of 8 cannot be found liable at all for their actions, even if they were unsupervised.

      You are spot on Sir. One has to ask why anyone would display such a valuable item on a less than secure stand. This could have just as well have happened due to someone stepping backwards as a child hitting the display.
