A couple of reactions:

1) This strikes me as a classic example of a jury acting practically rather than purely rationally. From the facts presented it seems unlikely that whatever injuries she has were caused by the collision with the bus. A rational jury decision would be either no liability, or liability with more significant damages.

2) Ms. Lee has not been lucky in her life. However, a collision with a WMATA bus should not be converted into a winning sympathy lottery ticket borne at taxpayer expense.
