Curtis has missing dog case pushed back again
Placeholder Image
A seemingly simple case of determining the rightful ownership of a dog has turned into a nearly year-long case as judges continue a game of musical chairs with a third judge now assigned to settle the matter.The prediction by the dog’s apparent rightful owner, Joe D. Curtis, that he would never see his dog Brutus again appears to be prophetic. He made the prediction in July when the original judge, Bill Locke, recused himself from the case. Locke suggested contempt of court charges be considered against defendant Clay Lerch, even as he recused himself from the case.
