Tammy Holt gets dog bite summary judgment reversed by the San Antonio Court of Appeals!

Congratulations to DP&S attorney Tammy Holt who successfully reversed a summary judgment granted against the plaintiff in a dog bite case!  Tammy successfully convinced the court of appeals that the plaintiff’s claims of strict liability, negligent handling, and gross negligence were supported by deposition testimony that dog was “leery” around strangers, prone to nip at heels, and that owners considered putting the dog away when plaintiff visited, but decided not to.  The court of appeals also refused to hold that compliance with a local leash law negated an element of plaintiff’s claim when the plaintiff did not allege a violation of the leash law.  You can read the San Antonio Court of Appeals decision here.
