Judges’ justice for our furry friends – Animal Law

We love people who stand up for our four-legged companions, and when they’re able to serve up some real justice, it’s even sweeter.

Pet advocates everywhere admire Judge Cicconetti, the judge who dishes out creative sentences to animal abusers. As it turns out, the TV-famous Judge Judy also has a soft spot for our furry friends.

In a recent custody battle over a curly-haired canine, two families each claimed that the pup was theirs. Both sides presented their arguments, and as it so happened, the mother-daughter defendants had brought the dog in question to the courthouse.

Judge Judy decided that the best way to find out the truth was to ask the most honest one involved in this case: the dog, Baby Boy! When one of the defendants carried him into the courtroom, the ruling became perfectly clear.
