State Tells Judge to Leave Dogs at Home

The Michigan State Court Administrative Office told a judge near Detroit to stop taking her terriers (Lurch and Lizzard) to work with her. The judge said she had occasionally had the dogs at work since 2004 and had had no problems -- and, in fact, children and court employees had appreciated the dogs' presence. On the other side, some people had complained, and the agency wanted nothing to detract from the seriousness and formality of the courtroom. - State Tells Judge to Leave Dogs at Home, AP, June 13, 2006.
