Judge Awards $65k Damages for Loss of Pet

A Colorado judge has awarded $65,000 for the negligent death of the plaintiff's 18-month old dog.  A cleaning service mistakenly let the dog out, where she was hit by a car.  The dog crawled back into the house, and the cleaning service left the dying dog - knowing it had been hit - under the dining room table, where the owner found her dead upon returning 2 hours later.  

 Colorado News9 and Channel 7 have more.   

Thanks to Lisa Smith-Butler for the alert.
