Laura Montanari, 8 Months Old, Finds the Lawsuit Against Her a Bit Hard to Swallow
The brown-eyed baby already had enough difficulties—she was colicky and cutting two teeth—when a Key Biscayne restaurant accused her of pocketing revenues from its cigarette machines. Laura's folks, Gary, 37, and Moira, 30, never doubted her innocence. "I watch her at night," says Gary, a Miami News photographer, "and I know she doesn't slip out and rip off cigarette machines."
The Montanaris' faith in Laura was well founded. The restaurant was actually trying to sue Lauramount Inc., a vending company. Through a mistake they filed suit against Lauramont Inc.—a trust fund set up by Laura's grandfather, Adelio Montanari, for her college education.
Fortunately Laura is still in her playpen, not the state pen. The suit has been dismissed, the lawyers have apologized, and Gary has learned a lesson in fatherhood. "I know girls are supposed to be a problem," he says, "but I thought it happened when they were teenagers."
