Gwinnett County Police K-9 Draco notched another win against an alleged criminal, this time in court.
Dog bites man. Man sues dog. Dog wins.
The dog was Draco, a prized member of the Gwinnett County Police Department’s K-9 unit. But on July 6, 2013, Draco bit the arm of burglary suspect Randall Kevin Jones, who later claimed the dog clamped down for what “seemed like a lifetime.”
When a federal judge rejected Gwinnett’s initial attempt to dismiss the lawsuit, the county appealed. On Friday, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta threw out the case against Draco.
“We hold that a dog may not be sued individually for negligence since a dog is not a ‘person,’” Judge Robin Rosenbaum wrote for a unanimous three-judge panel. Georgia law, she noted, does not allow such claims to be litigated against dogs.
The mere notion of allowing a lawsuit against a dog raises abundant practical issues, Rosenbaum added. How would you formally serve the lawsuit on a dog? What about the dog’s retention of legal representation? How can a dog be expected to pay damages?
I believe the accepted method for serving a lawsuit on a dog involves the lawyer peeing on the dog’s lawn.
Baby Groot and his brother were rescued from Walton County Animal Control on May 2 after being turned in as strays. They are both loving and playful fellas just looking for a family to cherish them. Since nothing is known about either parent, we can’t say with any certainty what the adult size will be or what they may be mixed with.
Baby Groot is currently suffering from rickets due to poor nutrition but with proper care and nourishment, he should fully recover.
These precious sisters were seen being pushed out of a truck on a rural road. COFAS rescued them from Walton AC the same day. They are about 3 months old, 12 lbs., sweet and happy as can be and are looking for their forever homes.
“I’m a fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. Must have a great sense of humor and some time to spend with me. I’m a dog on a mission to please you. I think everything is fun, interesting and meant for play, especially you. Anything you do, I’ll want to do too. With my own brand of surprises, life with me will keep you constantly on your toes, and the fun is guaranteed.”
