From Larry Powell's blog:
THE GIDEON FAMILY'S CASE: We got a note yesterday afternoon from Lynn Gideon – you may recall that Lynn and her husband, Mark, were in a bit of emotional anguish earlier this year when the City of Dallas, after getting repeated complaints from a nearby neighbor, began to threaten the family with the loss of their rescued animals, animals they’d taken in and lovingly cared for when no one else would step up.
Lynn’s note read, “I wanted to let you know that our lawsuit with the city of Dallas has been settled. We are very happy about it. All our pets will remain at home with us. Our oldest cat, Lily, died a few weeks ago, but at least she was at home and not in a strange place. Everybody else is well.
“Mark and I are so grateful for the many people that came forward to help us. We also appreciate so much your continued interest in us and our pets.”
The Gideon’s had engaged attorney Bryon L. Woolley of Simpson Woolley, LLP to represent them in the case.
He got a temporary injunction to keep the city from seizing the animals, there was some lawyer work and a settlement was reached.
If this doesn't prove that the city's 2008 pet limit ordinance is stupid...
