If you added a couple of additional facts about the nature of what was said (without including any personal information), maybe an attorney who deals with defamation...Read more »

I have an emotional support service dog. My ex who has the mother and father/brother of my dog does not have any type of papers showing ownership of my dogs parents, he is refusing to give me my dog back I do have Shiloh tagged and license and have an ID number for her to be my service dog.
Emotional support animals are assistance animals, not service dogs. This is an important legal distinction to keep in mind. You would need to go to Court, small claims likely, and ask for the specific performance of having the dog returned. You will want to bring all evidence that the dog is yours...Read more »

Maybe 10-15% of the value if a court deems you liable. Neighbor could sue you in small claims court. The court would decide if you have liability, based on the condition of the tree, any danger it posed, etc.
We have a pitbull and luckily they haven't been outside together, but we have watched our neighbor's dog jump into our fenced-in yard multiple times. What can we do (legally) other than ask the neighbor to watch their dogs?
As the owner of pit bull, you are a vulnerable target for a lawsuit if something bad happens. You should consider whether the fence should be taller. You might also advise the neighbor of your concern. Perhaps the neighbor might want to install a taller fence. Check with your homeowner...Read more »
