Ellen Massey blamed the team for her injuries, contending they knew or should have known the drunken 300-pound fan five rows above her was a problem, and they did nothing to stop him from tormenting the other people in her section.
That fan, Timothy Cassidy, denies he was drunk, but witnesses said he was so sloshed, he couldn't even complete the "Let's go Mets!" chant.
The incident happened on opening day of 2007, when Massey had treated two of her nephews to watch the Amazin's take on their hated rival Phillies.
Witnesses said Cassidy was drunk and belligerent through the game, chiding fans for not being boisterous enough and "trying to pick a fight with anybody he can."
