What are the rules for flying with a support animal? The U.S. Department of Transportation kicked off 2020 by proposing a new federal rule that would only allow a DOG to fly as an emotional support animal. The proposed rule also clarifies that the dog is considered a pet, not a service animal. The proposed new rule would also give airlines much more latitude in developing and enforcing their own policies regarding travel with service or emotional support animals. Individuals with disabilities are not impacted directly by the new rule and may continue to fly with their legitimate and verified service animal.

Did you hear about the woman who was walking the Graton trail when she and her little dog were attacked by a dog who escaped from a neighboring yard? In an attempt to protect her dog, she picked her dog up, only to have the attacking dog rip the dog from her arms and brutally kill it in front of her (she also suffered bites and abrasions). What legal rights does that poor woman have?

As part of my annual year-end tradition, I am highlighting some of the new California state laws. Keep in mind that during the 2019 Legislative Session, hundreds of Assembly Bills (AB) and Senate Bills (SB) collectively passed. Governor Gavin Newsom signed 870 of the 1,042 bills that landed on his desk (he vetoed the remaining 172 bills).
