Barking Mad

If you had a neighbor who had dogs that bark incessantly, and did nothing , would you sue them? The answer for two brothers in Ohio is a resounding "yes".

The brothers [Tom and Joe McDaniel] have sued Dan Ullman, claiming the relentless yapping of his dogs has created anxiety and compromised their standard of living. They are seeking more than $25,000 in damages.

Although the dogs are in a fenced yard the McDaniels claim their neighbor won't control the barking. They were supposed to go to trial last week, it has been delayed in hopes that there can be an out of court resolution.

We'll have to keep an eye on this case for the final outcome. Would you sue your neighbor over barking, or do you think it's something you just have to live with? Give me a bark.
