HOUSING AUTHORITY OF THE TOWN OF WALLINGFORD.
Appellate Court of Connecticut.
In this Case, the plaintiff, Patricia Giacalone, was attacked by a pit bull owned by the tenant of the Defendant. The Landlord/Defendant knew there was a dangerous dog on the property but did not follow through to make sure that it was removed from the property. The Court allowed a common-law negligence claim against the landlord/defendant. We have been successful in bringing similar claims against landlords in the State of Arizona on behalf of dog bite victims.
