usan Chana Lask with Umka the Puppy Battle Puppy Mills

Today the Ontario County Planning Board voted for a moratorium against opening a puppy mill in the Town of Gorham after  Susan Chana Lask provided arguments and law to them in her extensive legal memorandum.  She pointed out that the applicants wanting to open the Mill listed that there will be 640 dogs, but they omitted the fact that the number can be twice as much or more because those are "breeding dogs" only.

When Courts and Attorneys Ignore the Law

Remember when New York Dutchess County Judge Amodeo threw the poor pregnant mom, Genia Shockome, in jail for 30 days because she called him a liar during a Family Court custody proceeding. She was defending herself from losing custody of her child. Unfortunately, she was defending herself while pregnant.
