Dog vs. Cat Trial Set To Begin
VISTA, Calif. -- The case of the cat that attacked a dog in the library is about to go to trial.
Pretrial motions were scheduled for Tuesday in Richard Espinosa's lawsuit against the City of Escondido. Espinosa's assistance dog was scratched in 2000 by a cat known to reside at the Escondido Public Library.
Espinosa, who is representing himself, is suing the city for $1.5 million.
The former North County Times reporter said his dog, which he uses to ward off panic attacks, was entering the library on assignment when the attack occurred.
Espinosa claims he was a victim of disability discrimination because the city interfered with his ability to enter the library.
The city offered to settle the case for $1,500, but Espinosa rejected the offer.
The attack was at least the library cat's third attack on another animal, according to the North County Times.
The cat was removed from the facility after an attack on another dog in 2001
