Service Dog Stays

An Iowa man can keep his service dog, after it was taken away by the city where he lives. Aurelia, Iowa decided that James Sak couldn't keep his bull mix after a couple of dozen people signed a petition to have the dog removed. The city has a law against pit bulls in town. When Sak sued, a judge ruled the law is an ADA violation since it included service dogs. The city council of Aurelia voted 3-2 to comply with a judge's ruling that he be paid a $30,000 settlement.
