Law Talk 1/6/18

LawTalk for Saturday, Jan. 6 involved the topic of Animal Rights Law – an emerging and controversial area. Guest, Atty. Thom Page, is a leader in this new area of the law. We discussed Desmond’s Law (the appointment of advocates in criminal prosecutions for animal abuse to ensure that “the ends of justice” are satisfied (i.e., code words for “a lawyer for the animal”)). Also touched upon dog fighting, due process concerns in the discharge of their duties by Animal Control Officers, and appealing “kill orders.”
