By Bob GaetjensThe Gateway News EditorStreetsboro -- A top 10 graduate of Streetsboro High School's class of 2006 has been accused of intentionally elbowing an opponent during a January 2006 girls basketball game against Woodridge.Tabitha Richardson, 17 at the time of the incident, and her mother, Cassandra Richardson, are named defendants in a personal injury legal complaint filed Jan. 9 in Summit County Common Pleas Court. It was filed by attorney Diana M. Colavecchio on behalf of Cuyahoga Falls resident Anna R. Horning. The case was assigned to Summit County Common Pleas Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer.Horning, a member of last year's Woodridge varsity girls basketball team, is seeking $210,000 in damages to cover $5,000 in medical bills and "pain, emotional injury and permanent damage" incurred from a broken nose she received as a result of the incident.According to Colavecchio, more surgery is likely."As a direct, natural and proximate consequence of [Tabitha Richardson's] intentional act, ]Horning] required medical treatment, incurred more than $5,000 in medical bills, and will require additional medical treatment in the future," states the lawsuit.Tabitha and Cassandra Richardson's attorney, Amy Corrigall, said the incident was "an unfortunate accident that occurred during a game" and declined to comment further.SHS PRINCIPAL Jim Montaquila, who was present at the game, said he doesn't believe Richardson intended to elbow Horning."Tabitha graduated last year and she was one of the best kids I've ever had here," he said. "Things happen in athletics. You hate to see any injuries occur."The Ohio High School Athletic Association has reviewed a video of the basketball game and did not find any evidence that would warrant a further investigation, according to an OHSAA official."It was not conclusive," said Bob Goldring, assistant commissioner. "It would be rare for us to get involved."At this time, Colavecchio said no criminal charges are being filed against Richardson.According to Colavecchio, $210,000 is a reasonable amount to seek to cover injuries and damages from the incident."How do you put a price tag on a senior's lost opportunity to play half the games their senior year?" she asked, adding the loss of Horning was a loss to other team members, as well.She said she plans to use a video of the incident and witness testimonies as evidence in the case. No court date has been set.Editor's note: Record-Courier Reporter Don Jovich contributed to this article.E-mail: bgaetjens@recordpub.comPhone: (330) 688-0088 ext. 3151
