Dog Owners Prevail in Supreme Court, Thanks to ZALaw!

Call it a win for dog owners everywhere. Zupkus & Angell attorneys Kristi Lush and Erica Payne secured a victory for their client, a dog owner, in a landmark case of first impression in Colorado. A three-year legal battle culminated today with the Colorado Supreme Court’s unanimous verdict that, in the absence of a special relationship, a landowner whose dogs ran at his fence and barked at a pedestrian, who then ran into the street and was struck by a vehicle, owed no duty to the pedestrian. Oral argument was held on May 4, 2017 at South High School in Pueblo, Colorado as part of the Colorado Supreme Court’s Community Outreach Program.

BusAs part of our initiative to move to a paperless office, we find ourselves less in need of binders, report covers, staplers, hole punches, file folders and, well… paper. So what do we do with a room full of these supplies? ZA Law was able to donate several truckloads of unused office supplies to a few great causes in the Denver Area:

Minority Enterprise & Educational Development, in partnership with WBENC (of which ZA Law is a proud member) accepted several boxes of ZA Law supplies for their annual “Stuff the Bus” School Supply Donation Program. These will help fill the backpacks of underprivileged DPS students headed to school this fall. A truckload of ZA Law supplies also went to Colorado Resource Area for Teaching, a foundation dedicated to supporting local teachers by providing access to necessary school room supplies.

Zupkus & Angell is proud to be an active partner in our community and looks forward to finding more unique opportunities to contribute!
