The teachei insisted on her participating in touch football since she did not have a physician's note. The plaintiff related that when she was tagged with some force during the game, she fell. The plaintiff contended that the trauma precipitated premature labor and delivery at approximately six months five days later. The plaintiff maintained that the prematurity caused physical deficits largely involving contractures which create difficulties with walking. The child has undergone extensive physical and occupational therapy and the prognosis for the child, currently ? is good. The defendant maintained that if there was a causal connection between the incident and the onset of labor,significantly less time than five days would have elapsed and that the plaintiff's claims should be rejected.
