Suit names four-legged defendant
(2005-12-14)
(WOUB) - Athens County Sheriff Vern Castle says people are joking that a local lawsuit might be settled with a box of dog biscuits.

One of the parties being sued by a convicted drug dealer is Andi, a sheriff's department dog. Wayne Green claims his Albany furniture business was illegally searched by the dog and others in 2003.

With Andi's help, searchers found 50 pounds of marijuana. Last month, a jury convicted Green of possession and trafficking, and he faces sentencing early next month.

Sheriff Castle says he doesn't know what Green is thinking, by suing the dog. The county prosecutor who served Andi with the complaint made sure to get his paw print, just to be on the safe side.
