No Emotional Injury Damages For Angel's Death

The New Jersey Supreme Court has held that a plaintiff may not recover damages for the emotional injury caused by witnessing the death of her pet dog, a "maltipoo" named Angel.

The court concluded that a pet is property and not the equivalent of a family member.

The defendant's large dog had picked the deceased up by the neck, shook it several times and dropped it, causing the death. (Mike Frisch)
