NEW YORK -- Two nurses have filed a $200,000 civil lawsuit against the son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, accusing him of negligence, assault and battery, as well as causing them emotional and physical distress.

The charges stemmed from Douglas Kennedy's attempt in January to take his newborn son from a suburban New York maternity ward.

The two nurses said Kennedy hurt them as they tried to prevent him from leaving with the newborn.

Kennedy claimed he was just taking the baby outside for some fresh air.

The newspaper said Kennedy vowed to fight the lawsuit and called it an attempt to extort money from his family.
