Allegheny Co. youth hockey coach sues parent for alleged attack over playing time

By Philip Gonzales | Nov 6, 2018

PITTSBURGH — A husband and wife are suing Timothy Hanna, an individual, citing alleged negligence.

Christie Kelly and Doug Kelly filed a complaint Oct. 23 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas against Timothy Hanna, alleging the individual failed to keep his hand and arms under control.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that Doug Kelly was a coach in a youth hockey team upon which defendant's minor son was a player. After the game ended, defendant was unhappy with the amount of time his son played, the suit says. 

During the discussion, defendant allegedly struck Christie Kelly's head and face with his hand. She has suffered cognitive headaches, impairment of memory, dizziness and peripheral vertigo, the suit says. The plaintiffs hold Timothy Hanna responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to refrain from striking plaintiff's head.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensatory damages, costs, interest and such other just and equitable relief. They are represented by Robert Woomer of Woomer & Talarico LLC in Pittsburgh.
