You might think it obvious that a parent can act on his or her minor child’s behalf to release the child’s right to sue. We have had several courts ruling on this issue recently. The trend appears to be “no, they cannot.” However, some courts have carved out a distinction between “commercial” and “non-commercial” entities in determining who is more worthy of protection and thus, whether a parent can release these rights on behalf of their child. The North Carolina Court takes this path in our latest case offering. What do you think? Is the distinction valid?
