Alec Baldwin’s Latina Wife Sued Over Yoga Mishap

Usually yoga studios are full of peace and love. But this past January, Hilaria Thomas’ “Flow” class was full of broken glass and blood. Apparently the new Mrs. Alec Baldwin placed one of her students a little close to a window which led to a serious accident and a trip to the ER.
32-year-old literature student Spencer Wolf claims Hilaria put him in a position of “extreme danger” by making him do a handstand near a large window. While trying to attempt the move, he slipped, crashed through the glass and suffered severe injuries to his legs.
As the instructor, the blame falls solely on Thomas. The suit claims that she overbooked her class, leading students to position themselves in areas that were unsafe. She also allegedly didn’t pay close enough attention to Wolf and had been unaware of his balance issues until it was too late.
Outside of Spencer’s injuries, the broken window sent shards of glass into the streets of New York, endangering pedestrians. According to The Stir, people from outside actually ran into the studio to see what happened.  Wolf’s fellow yoga students were also visibly upset and began yelling to Hilaria, “It’s your fault! It’s your fault!”
Thomas reportedly felt terrible about the accident and even rode with Spencer as he was rushed to a local hospital. But the damage had already be done, with the lawsuit alleging that Wolf may now be permanently disabled.
Ironically, this news comes at what should be a very joyous time for Hilaria. Just this month, she announced that she was expecting her first child with Baldwin.
“We're having a baby!,” Thomas told Extra last week. “It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise."
Perhaps with all of this commotion going on with her professional life, now may be an ideal time to start that early maternity leave.
Do you think Hilaria was negligent with her yoga students or is somebody trying to take advantage of her fame?

Yes I certainly think so.

If the class was over booked it mean that she is a very good teacher.

In yoga at some stage one learns about the law of karma.

Spencer need to look at this from another angle.

Suing your yoga teacher is not the answer.

It's the USA. It is always someone else's fault. Self acceptance for your own mistakes and just dumb luck are gone with the poodle skirt. We have become a society of blamers and attackers. It is our downfall. 
First of all when I see the term "latina" what do they do consistently as she has done...dumbest Balwin: did he actually think she married him for anything but a guaranteed income for l8 years...if so, he is dumbest and desperate...  As far as the class: name recognition also contributed to the lawsuit...otherwise a rented studio person wouldn't have a dime for a lawsuit...deep pockets are the grandiose...lead for all scabs--attorneys and suit filers...
