"Attorney Makes Outrageous Demands in Animal Neglect Case" the headline blares. I was expecting the lawyer to request that the judge impanel a jury of cats in a dog abuse or something. And the "outrageous" story? Not so much. Mainly he asked that the judge move the media from the jury box (I assume the judge will be deciding the case). That, and a couple of procedural motions, including that the judge be recused. Shocking!
And I don't say this to defend an alleged animal abuser (and remember it is only alleged at this point). It's just that the story from the headline on down seems a little overwrought.
