Just when we all thought that the craziness over a cat legally turned over to and then adopted from the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society was over, we find out that an appeal has been filed with the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York. I guess the other side didn't like the things Judge Zwack had said in his decision, especially things like this:
"Plaintiffs own actions, or inactions as the case may be, directly led to their loss - the cat had no collar or microchip for identification - and the cat was allowed to roam the neighborhood freely. While plaintiffs never imagined this scenario, and the Court surely appreciates that it is indeed heartbreaking event, it was an inevitable consequence of their inattention to their cat."
So much for suffering the consequences of your own actions or inactions. I guess people are no longer responsible for the irresponsibility of their own actions or inactions. The cat certainly suffered; there are vet records indicating that the cat was infested with ticks and tapeworms on several occasions and had suffered injuries while roaming free and foraging for food.
Remember, this whole lawsuit occurred after Crazy and her cronies had already launched a campaign of harassment and threats against my daughter. There are police reports on record.
As far as I am concerned, the lawsuit against my daughter and my daughter's boyfriend and the notice of appeal from Judge Zwack's decision in the matter are all part of an ongoing campaign of harassment, a campaign that began, not with legal action, but with threats and a face-to-face confrontation. That's how I look at it!
