$1 Million Bit Nipple?

Pit Bull attacks have been big news lately. How about suing for $1 million dollars in such an attack? The kind of injuries such a mauling brings to mind may seem justified. Now, think about a Jack Russell Terrier (JRT), the kind of dog that was a star cast member on the TV sitcom Frasier. O.K., even a JRT can bite your leg, savage your ankle and shred your hand, maybe.

Then there's the lawyer from the firm of Bohdan Neswiacheny, specializing in insurance defense and commercial litigation. According to reports, a JRT was in a tiff with some other pups in a Boca Raton dog park at Military and Banyan trails. The lawyer stepped in and picked up the JRT, which he did not know or own. The JRT, shall we say, allegedly "nipped" him on the, um, nipple. The lawyer is now suing the Boca Raton family who owns the 2-year old dog, which was adopted one week earlier, for $1 million.

According to the suit, the lawyer needs the money to pay for medical treatment, loss of income and for general damages for pain, suffering, physical disfigurement and "loss of sexual comfort and desire."

Read the article from the Sun-Sentinel here and see if you think this is the kind of story that makes people like dogs and dislike lawyers. Hey, by the way, did you hear the joke about the Jack Russell Terrier and the lawyer at the dog park? If not, just click the link. Geez!

That's one expensive nipple he got there. I wonder if this case would push through with the $1M settlement.
