On March 15, 2016, a jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of Joe Traylor’s client in a Clark County case involving a plaintiff who was injured trying to separate his pit bull from a fight with defendant’s black lab in plaintiff’s back yard. Plaintiff needed over $20,000 in hand surgery to repair bite damage caused when one of the dogs bit him. Plaintiff alleged that at 2 a.m. he took his pit bull out into his back yard to urinate when defendant’s black lab came charging through a hole in his fence and attacked him. Subsequent investigation by Traylor revealed that Plaintiff drank substantially more than the 2 beers he admitted to, and was likely bitten when he tried to separate the two dogs from fighting. Even though defendant’s black lab was trespassing on plaintiff’s property, the Jury concluded defendant was not at fault as plaintiff’s veracity problems kept him from establishing all of the elements necessary to win his case. It was a very challenging case from a legal perspective, despite the plaintiff’s character flaws.
