From this story.
The basic idea is that a man goes into a library with a guide dog. A cat in the library (the “unofficial library mascot” according to the owner of the dog) pounced on the dog and attacked it. This caused him panic attacks which continue to torment him (the owner, not the dog). He sued for $1.5 million.
When the city refused to pay up on the specious claim he added to the complaint that the attack was a “hate crime.”
He complained that becuase he is disabled, he expected a “proper response” from the city, which never arrived.
So [insert tongue in cheek here],
[li]Is an attack by a cat on a dog a hate crime?[/li][li]Is this a baseless suit? Is the guy entitled to no more than vet bills (if that)?[/li][li]Are only the disabled entitled to a response on an accusation? What if it was my dog who was injured? [/li][/ul]
