Fetching a Subpoena

One unlucky canine is having a dog day afternoon:

County Prosecutor C. David Warren said to his knowledge, it’s the first time the county’s dog has ever been singled out as a defendant. Warren has volunteered to handle Andi’s defense personally.

“That dog could’ve done something to me or one of my attendants,” said Wayne Francis Green, 46, of Albany, who filed the suit Nov. 18 in Athens County Common Pleas Court.

Green, who is representing himself, alleges that a search of his furniture business in 2003 was illegal . . .

Last week, Andi the German shepherd was informed that he’s being sued, sort of. With a paw print, the dog “signed” the paper indicating he had been formally served with the complaint.

Green said he wants prosecutors to look into the dog’s actions. “I want him charged with several different felony counts.”

So Green is representing himself and suing a dog. Interesting. What sort of assets does a dog have? Is he suppose to hock his milkbones? I suppose Green could win if he stacked the jury with mailmen and dog catchers – but, somehow, I am not picturing him as a dyanmo judicial strategizer.
