Woman May Lose Her Home Because Of Dog

A Seattle woman's dog might cause her to lose her home. Her neighbor sued her for $500,000, saying her dog intentionally caused him "profound emotional distress" .... by barking.

According to investigation of this story - Denise Norton didn't think the lawsuit over her dog Cawper was even real, so she didn't show up for court, but her absence in court for what was a very real lawsuit meant she lost.

"The sheriff comes and puts the papers on the garage and the wall and everything saying they're going to put the house up for sale," Norton said.

"The family has poured much of its savings into hiring lawyers, perhaps a few years too late," said Jon Humbert.

Even though losing your home over a dog sounds ridiculous, the basis of the story is fairly polarizing.
