DENVER PITBULL ADA OPINION by Judge Marcia Krieger, Denver CO
Notice that in the lawsuit, the Judge carefully delineates the “standing” required in Federal Court.
We are not familiar with the prior lawsuit documents, so we cannot tell for sure if there was standing prior to getting this far in the case. Nevertheless the attorneys say they are appealing. An appeal normally means there is an error of law or an abuse of discretion. It remains to be seen how they plan to lay out the appeal.
Hector—Rescued in 2007 from NFL Quarterback Michael Vick’s dogfighting operation—is shown with owner/trainer Roo Yori at a middle school where they are teaching children how to safely interact with animals.
What happens when a city bans pit bulls and a disabled resident has a pit bull service dog?
