I repeat: the Georgia Supreme Court did not change law regarding non-economic damages.
Court rules unique human-animal bond is beyond legal measure, but pet owners may recover costs of medical care and fair market value.
Over the past 10 days, much attention has been devoted to a Georgia Supreme Court decision in which a boarding kennel was accused of causing the death of one of its boarders, a dachshund, due to negligence.
Readers should take a deep breath and exhale. The court did not change existing law barring the recovery of emotional or sentimental damages.
